Laid-off Deere workers recalled


OTTUMWA (KWWL) - Deere & Company says it will recall most of the workers it laid off earlier this year in Ottumwa.

The company says 452 manufacturing employees will be recalled to its John Deere Ottumwa Works starting November 30 as it begins making 2010 models.

But Deere says 78 other workers will remain laid off until market conditions improve.

The Ottumwa plant makes equipment such as balers and pull-type forage harvesters.
