Toyota to lay off 370 temps by year's end

Toyota will lay off 370 from its variable work force by the end of 2007, according to the Evansville Courier & Press:

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana will eliminate its variable work force of about 370 workers by the end of the year, according to a company spokeswoman.

The job cuts are due to several factors, including the fact the Gibson County plant no longer needs to provide workers to help start up Toyota's San Antonio plant and a decline in demand for the Sequoia sport utility vehicle one of the vehicles made at TMMI.

Kelly Dillon, a TMMI spokeswoman, said employees at TMMI and at Personnel Management Inc., which provides the variable work force, were notified of the cutbacks this week.
