Alcoa cutting 65 jobs at Lafayette plant

A central Indiana Alcoa plant is laying off 40 workers in the latest cutback by the company.

United Steelworkers local president Jerry Misner says the layoffs at the Lafayette plant are effective Monday. He says the
factory also is cutting the jobs of 25 employees who accepted a retirement incentive package.

Alcoa spokeswoman Jean Moorman says the company made the job cuts because of a decline in customer orders. She said no other
layoffs were planned.

Alcoa laid off 17 workers in February, leaving the Lafayette plant with just under 700 employees.
