More Trane Layoffs

Citing lower sales, a spokeswoman said Trane laid off 87 hourly workers at its La Crosse operations Monday. That brings to 182 the number of employees who are on layoff at Trane in La Crosse, according to Misty Zelent, director of external communications for parent company Ingersoll Rand. About 1,900 hourly and salaried employees continue to work at Trane in La Crosse.

Zelent says they hope to bring these laid-off employees back as soon as possible, but that will depend on economic conditions and customer demand for La Crosse-made products, along with internal factors such as retirements and attrition.

Zelent also said that depending on economic conditions and customer demand, there is the possibility of additional reductions in the future.
