DUBLIN (WSLS 10) Volvo is cutting more jobs at its Dublin Plant. A spokesman for the company says it's too early to say exactly how many jobs will be cut.

The layoffs come after the company lowered its forecast for the North American market. Volvo will begin reducing production at the plant in August.

"We regret having to take this action, but we operate in a cyclical market, and we have to adapt to market demand," a Volvo spokesman said in a statement.

Back in February, around 500 people were laid off.

Volvo will offer outplacement support meetings led by the company and UAW representatives to all affected employees
