Southwestern Virginia Volvo Plant to Lay Off 650 Workers
Volvo said today that it is permanently laying off 40 percent of its workforce -- 650 employees -- at its truck plant in Dublin, Va., just southwest of Blacksburg.
The layoffs will begin in March and follow a round of layoffs that cost 1,000 jobs in May.
The plant also plans weeklong shutdowns during the first quarter of this year in an effort to avoid further job cuts.
