Caterpillar plans about 100 layoffs at Indiana plant

Caterpillar Inc. plans to lay off about 100 workers from an Indiana engine plant where it has already cut hundreds of jobs.

Company spokesman Jim Dugan said about 106 production employees will be included in the layoffs that will start in
November at the Large Engine Center in Lafayette.

He said the layoffs are being made as the Peoria, Ill.-based
company continues to monitor its production needs.

Before the cuts announced Tuesday, Caterpillar started rolling
layoffs for 985 employees at the factory, where 580 workers already are on a layoff status.
