More layoffs at Shelbyville auto glass plant Home / What's New / Company News

Another 51 union employees will be laid off from Shelbyville's Pilkington North America Co. plant by the end of this month, company officials told workers this week.

The Shelbyville News reports that once the cuts are implemented, almost half of the plant's 284 hourly workers that it had four months ago will be gone.

Pilkington spokesperson Roberta Stedman told The News that the latest job cuts would be implemented by the end of March and are in response to reductions in orders for automobile parts. She said the hourly employees will be laid off "indefinitely."

"Our customers are the car manufacturers, so when their sales slow down, our volumes get reduced," she told the newspaper. "The volumes are down, and it's just not here in North America."
