Gulf States Toyota to cut 83 jobs at its Houston center

Article by Anita Panait, on October 29, 2013

Gulf States Toyota is planning to reduce the workforce at its vehicle processing center in Houston, Texas, and will cut 83 jobs, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle and the notice the company sent to the Texas Workforce Commission. According to the filing, the job cuts at Gulf States Toyota will commence on Nov. 18.

The company also said in the filing -- which was required under the U.S. Worker Adjustment and Training Notification Act (WARN) --that it expects the layoffs to be permanent. Gulf States Toyota provides parts and delivers vehicles to over 150 dealers in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Oklahoma.

The company said in the notice that while its entire plant is not being closed, "several positions are being eliminated based on a change in business objectives and accessory product offerings for 2014."

The company noted that since it is a non-union employer, workers do not have bumping rights, which means that if higher-ranked employees are laid off, they cannot take the jobs of lower-seniority workers. Over 250,000 vehicles pass through Gulf States Toyota's vehicle processing center annually, accounting for 12% of Toyota sales in the US. [source: automotive news - sub. required]
