Deere & Co. Tractor Cab and Assembly Production to Move to Mexico by 2024

John Deere and Company confirmed in an email sent to Waterloo employees that the “production of all cabs, welding and assembly, for current and future products” will be moved to Mexico. The cab move will occur in incremental phases with a completion date set for 2024.  The company sent the announcement to prepare employees for upcoming new product programs that will move in its space. John Deere says that during the next 18 months they will “evaluate how the move will affect staffing levels, consistent with contractual terms and HR practices.” UAW Local 838 President Tim Frickson says it is his understanding that there are no planned layoffs at the facility, where approximately 1,100 people work.
