KNS: Alcoa Inc. cutting 115 Blount County jobs

Aluminum maker Alcoa Inc. said today it is cutting 115 jobs at its Blount County smelter operation.

The Pittsburgh-based company said the job cuts are part of a corporatewide effort to reduce costs in the face of plummeting aluminum prices.
Employees were told of the job cuts earlier today, Alcoa spokesman Kevin Lowery said.

Hourly and salaried workers as well as contractors will be affected by the cuts, which will be phased in over the next 12 months.
