A southeastern Iowa factory may be losing 70 more jobs in September after 50 workers were laid off last month. C-N-H Global is considering a plan to move the 70 jobs from its Burlington plant to one in Georgia as the construction equipment maker works to stay efficient and competitive. Carter Langston is company spokesman at the headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois. He says they may outsource part of the operation.C-N-H Global is the name for the company which owns the former Case plant after it merged with New Holland two years ago. Twenty years ago, the Burlington facility employed more than 18-hundred people. Now, it has about 700 workers and a tenth of them may be cut in this latest move.Langston says the layoffs announced last month were due to the slowdown in the market for the equipment made in Burlington. The plant makes backhoes, endloaders and crawler/dozers.
