Kenworth Layoffs
(WOUB) - The Kenworth Trucking plant in Chillicothe is issuing layoff notices to employees.

The treasurer of Kenworth's Parent company, Paccar, Ken Gangl says company officials announced at the plant Thursday that there would be a decrease in production.

Gangl says he doesn't know exactly how many people are being laid off - but it's less than 100.

He says the layoffs are due to the slow economy and high fuel costs.

Gangl says workers could be called back to the Ross County Truck manufacturing plant if orders improve.
