Harley Davidson To Cut 180 Jobs

7/19/17 – Union officials say Milwaukee’s Harley Davidson will cut about 180 jobs this fall, and the motorcycle engine plant at Menomonee Falls will be among those most affected. The United Steelworkers Union says a bike assembly plant in Kansas City will also be hard hit — and beside the job cuts, temporary furloughs are also expected. Union sub district director Ross Winklbauer says his members “did not see this coming.” Harley announced Tuesday it would reduce its workforce in the wake of a nine-point-three percent decline in motorcycle sales in the second quarter of this year, compared to one year ago.
