Research, technical and support employees at Cummins in southern Indiana will likely dodge workforce reductions for now as the engine maker trims its global workforce by the end of the year by as many as 1,500 people.
Steve Green, president of the 1,300-member Office Committee Union, said he was told by a Cummins official on Monday there'd be "no current job actions" on workers in the group he represents.
Production workers who build engines for Cummins, though, may not have the same safeguards as the $17 billion-in-sales engine maker trims its global payroll to cope with a troubled world economy.
The company has a total workforce of 46,200 around the world.
