FREEPORT (WIFR) – Another decision is leaving more workers out of a job.

We’ve learned Titan Tire is laying off another round of employees at its Freeport plant.

According to Union President Dale Sandell, 26 production and maintenance workers will be gone next week. He says it’s due to low demand for farm tires. About 344 hourly employees will still be represented by the union at the plant.
