Caterpillar Inc. notified 120 workers at its Victoria, Texas, facility that they will no longer have a job effective, November 1.

Company officials said “market conditions” are the reason for the layoffs.

“Caterpillar notified a portion of its Victoria, Texas, workforce that it is taking actions to bring production in line with demand,” according to a statement from Lisa Miller, spokeswoman for Illinois-based Caterpillar.

The layoffs were first reported in the Victoria Advocate on October 30.

Most of the Caterpillar workers laid off were supplemental employees hired on a short-term basis, with the possible opportunity to be hired full-time, according to social media posts.

Caterpillar also recently announced it was outsourcing jobs at its Peoria, Illinois facility to a company in Dublin, Ireland. The positions were in its finance and accounting departments, according to WMBD-TV.
