Deere & Co. Recalls 452 Workers

AG Weekly Online

MOLINE, Ill. (AP) _ Farm equipment maker Deere & Co. says it will recall most of the workers it laid off earlier this year at an Iowa plant.

The Moline, Ill.-based company says the 452 manufacturing employees will be recalled to its John Deere Ottumwa Works starting Nov. 30 as it begins production of its 2010 models.

But Deere says 78 other workers will remain laid off until market conditions improve enough to warrant their return.

In June, Deere said it would temporarily lay off 494 of the factory's workers due to weak demand amid the economic slowdown. That followed a layoff of 40 employees in April.

The Ottumwa Works employed about 260 salaried employees and 720 wage employees, including those who remain laid off.

The plant makes equipment such as balers and pull-type forage harvesters used by hay and livestock producers.
