MILWAUKEE - Oshkosh Corp. said Thursday it plans to eliminate about 760 jobs from its defence division this summer, or 29 per cent of the group's workforce, a decision driven by lower demand for its mine-resistant trucks and other military vehicles.
About 700 hourly positions will be cut beginning in June, and 60 salaried positions will be eliminated starting in July, the Wisconsin-based company said. Oshkosh Defence will be left with about 1,850 employees.
The overall company has about 12,000 employees worldwide.
