Cummins Inc. has reduced its global workforce by about 3,000 since late last year, a reduction of more than 6 percent.
The company had announced Oct. 9 that a global economic slowdown was prompting it to trim 1,000 to 1,500 jobs by year’s end from its worldwide workforce of 47,000. Then on Oct. 17, the Columbus-based engine maker said it would reduce its southern Indiana workforce of 7,700 by about 150.
A spokesman also said Wednesday that the company’s external hiring in 2013 would be “very limited.”
