On the day Volvo Trucks announced
record sales last year, hundreds of

County worked their final shift.

The company had already announced
it expected lower sales this year.

Close to one-thousand workers in

The company announced the layoffs
last November... saying they would cut
one thousand jobs at the Dublin plant.

That number has been reduced to
about 900 because some workers found
other jobs or retired.

Today layoff's are not the end..
dozens more will lose their jobs in
March.

A company official say the reason
for the layoffs is a slowdown in demand
for heavy duty vehicles.

Also, stricter federal emissions
standards went into effect this year.

Volvo officials say that means
their heavy duty diesel trucks will
