Trane announces seasonal layoffs

Local air conditioner maker Trane says their seasonal layoffs here in East Texas will be somewhat more than usual this year because of a weakening economy and slow sales.

The company says it will be laying off 150 more workers than expected, but also told KLTV 7 News that over three quarters of those will be rehired once the slower winter season is over.
