Maytag Laying Off 110 Workers in Iowa

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - Maytag Corp. officials told its workers' union that about 110 employees would be laid off in Newton Friday, union officials said.

"It's sad," said Pat Teed, president of Local 997 of the United Auto Workers. The cuts come just two months after the company laid off 170 production workers.

Lynne Dragomier, a Maytag spokeswoman, confirmed workers would be laid off but said the company doesn't disclose numbers.

"This is a business decision based on volume requirements," she said. Maytag's laundry business is up overall, but demand is down for models produced at Newton, Dragomier said.
