Union: Indiana tech jobs at Cummins expected safe
A union president says no layoffs are planned among the research, technical and support employees at Indiana operations as engine maker Cummins Inc. makes cutbacks.
The Columbus-based company announced last week it planned to cut up to 1,500 jobs worldwide by year's end but hasn't released details.
Steve Green heads the 1,300-member Office Committee Union at Cummins and tells The Republic that he's been told by company officials that no job actions would involve the workers he represents.
A union leader for production workers at Cummins' Indiana plants has said he expected some of those workers to be affected.
The company had 46,200 employees worldwide in early September. It has some 7,700 workers in southern Indiana, including the Columbus headquarters and factories in Columbus and Seymour.
