As Freightliner gets ready to announce restructuring plans later this month, it is already cutting costs with a companywide rollback on pay and benefits of nonunion workers.

The Oregonian reports that the company is cutting costs with a 5 percent pay cut, dumping this year's bonus and requiring workers to pay co-payments for medical and prescription drug costs.
Freightliner has also asked union employees in its headquarters city of Portland, Ore., for similar wage and benefit concessions, according to the paper. They are expected to vote on the proposal later this week. According to the paper, DaimlerChrysler is considering closing Freightliner's plants in Portland.
