Volvo lays off 650 at Dublin plantThis is not the Christmas present these folks wanted.
By Angela Manese-Lee, The Roanoke Times
Roughly a year after Volvo Trucks North America announced plans to lay off more than 1,000 people from its Dublin plant, officials are looking to trim employment again.
This time, by up to 650 people.
The layoffs, which Volvo spokesman Jim McNamara said will hit at the end of January, cap a year of up and down employment at the plant, when hundreds of workers were laid off, then recalled and now are likely to be laid off again. (link)
Here's hoping Volvo finds its footing again soon. Southwest Virginia is depending on it.
