COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) -- Diesel engine maker Cummins Inc. has temporarily laid off another 50 employees due to declining demand for large pickup trucks.
A Cummins spokesman says another 80 employees have been shifted from the Midrange Engine Plant near Columbus to other Cummins plants as part of Monday's layoffs.
Cummins laid off 163 workers from the plant in June.
The company spokesman says all workers are expected to return in mid-August when production will begin on engines for the 2009 model year.
The plant makes 6.7 liter diesel engines for the Dodge Ram pickup truck.
