Daimler Trucks brings back 540 workers in N.C.
Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) plans to recall about 540 workers to three of its manufacturing facilities in North Carolina. Recalled workers are expected to be in place by mid-July at the company’s truck manufacturing facilities in Mt. Holly and Cleveland, as well as at the components and logistics plant in Gastonia.
Daily build rates at the Mt. Holly and Cleveland plants are rising sharply in response to strong 2010 order activity.
In April, DTNA and the UAW reached agreement on new labor contracts for the plants. The new contracts include baseline production commitments, which will provide job stability and security for plant employees.
DTNA, a recognized industry pacesetter for EPA10 readiness and performance, is reaping significant rewards for its forward-thinking business investments. Customers have placed orders for more than 21,400 EPA10 vehicles to date, including 16,565 Freightliner-brand trucks.
