AMANA (KWWL) - Whirlpool announced Friday that it will implement a seasonal layoff of as many as 200 employees at its Amana plant.

This layoff will be effective January 9, 2010.

The Amana plant is reducing staff size due to the lower production requirements that are typical for this time of the  year.

Plant leaders indicated that they expect to recall these workers sometime in 2010.
