DuPont in Old Hickory to eliminate 240 positions

WSMV Channel 4 reports today that the DuPoint plant in Old Hickory is eliminating 80 to 100 private contractor positions and 140 direct employment jobs.

The cuts will be completed by the end of the March. The impact to the Old Hickory community will be substantial.

DuPont has been a Nashville area economic fixture for generations. This layoff hits at a hard time for the state and city economically with rising budget deficits.
