By Christopher Bjorke, Grand Forks Herald:

LM Wind Power, one of Grand Forks’ largest manufacturers, announced Tuesday that it would lay off more than 300, citing weak demand and uncertain political support for the industry.

The reductions include 200 full-time production workers, 15 administrative staff workers and approximately 130 temporary workers and contractors, according to the company’s statement.

LM’s remaining workforce is 270, according to Dan Gordon, the company’s human resources manager. The laid-off workers will stay on the job until Nov. 30.
