Australian automobile maker Holden to cut more jobs

Australian automobile maker Holden is expected to cut about 200 jobs, mainly from its Melbourne headquarters, the company has confirmed Wednesday.

"We're offering voluntary packages within some of our functions, primarily office-based functions at our Port Melbourne headquarters," company spokesman Scott Whiffin was quoted as saying by Australian Associated Press.

"Some of these functions have remained more or less untouched over the years as we've gone down to one shift out at our Elizabeth plant, as export and engineering projects have come and gone, and as our domestic markets have contracted."

According to the report, a source has said the company hoped to lose about 200 workers, mainly white-collar workers in areas such as engineering and marketing.

Sharelle Herrington, senior industrial officer for the Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers, said she expected about 70 jobs to go from engineering - about 10 percent of its workforce.

Holden recently closed its four-cylinder engine plant at Fisherman's Bend, shedding about 500 jobs, and has cut the hours of workers at its Adelaide factory.

It also lost a lucrative export program when its troubled parent, General Motors, axed its Pontiac division, which was selling left-hand drive variants of the Holden Commodore as the Pontiac G8 in North America.
