DaimlerChrysler AG’s Mercedes-Benz unit plans to cut output at its Sindelfingen, Germany, plant due to slumping vehicle sales. Output expectations for 2004 reportedly are lower than originally planned, and workers with short-term contracts are expected to be eliminated, according to a report in the Brennpunkt workers’ magazine. Sindelfingen, which makes the C-Class and E-Class, employs 33,373 workers.
