RIVERDALE, Iowa (AP) -- Alcoa Inc. is cutting jobs at its Davenport Works plant in the Quad Cities as part of a worldwide reduction.
The aluminum producer says in a news release issued Friday that it will reduce its hourly work force by about 220 positions. Alcoa says the number of salaried employees affected hasn't been finalized.
The cuts are part of a plan announced Jan. 6 to cut 13 percent of its global work force by the end of the year to deal with the deteriorating world economy.
The plant, located in Riverdale, has about 2,100 workers. It produces aluminum sheet and plate for a variety of industries, including aerospace and defense, and cars and trucks.
