Impending job cuts at Cummins Inc. operations around the world likely will affect employees throughout the company, a spokesman said Wednesday as the engine maker released third-quarter earnings.
“Determinations are being made, but this will have a global impact across the enterprise and will likely impact office, professional, shop, temporary and full-time employees. Leadership is going through a careful, thoughtful process,” Jon Mills, a Cummins spokesman in Indiana, wrote via email Wednesday afternoon.
“This is difficult for the employees and the entire company,”Earlier in the day, Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger had said that “all our businesses and all parts of the company are participating” in cost-cutting that will include the reduction of 1,000 to 1,500 jobs globally.
Cummins employs more than 400 workers at its Seymour Engine Plant off East Third Street, where a $219 million expansion remains under way.
