TOMAHAWK – About 50 employees at the Tomahawk Harley-Davidson plants will be losing their jobs due to the company’s decision to “adjust its production volume.”
The company announced on Thursday, June 25 that it would be cutting approximately 140 jobs nationwide. About 90 production workers at the company’s York, Penn., facility will also be affected.
“As course of normal business, Harley-Davidson regularly adjusts its production plan and appropriately sizes its workforce,” a spokesperson for Harley-Davidson stated. “The company announced it will adjust its production volume, which will result in a workforce reduction of approximately 50 Tomahawk employees.”
Roughly 300 people work at Harley-Davidson’s Tomahawk facilities, located at 426 E. Somo Ave. and 611 Kaphaem Rd., making it one of the city’s largest employers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the company’s already dwindling sales.
The Tomahawk Leader will update this story as information becomes available.
