SMYRNA, TN-Nissan North America Inc. will offer buyouts to some 6,000 employees at the company's two Tennessee plants and eliminate a night shift at one plant because rising fuel prices and the economic downturn have slowed sales of trucks and sport utility vehicles.
The technicians and salaried employees at the assembly plant in Smyrna and powertrain plant in Decherd, TN, will be offered a lump sum of $100,000 or $125,000 depending on tenure, as well as medical and car purchase benefits. MORE
