​HOUSTON - Union Tank Car Co. will cut 230 jobs in eastern Houston due to the company reducing production by about half.

The jobs are expected to be cut on or within 14 days of June 10, the company said in a letter to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

The facility, at 16923 Old Beaumont Hwy. 90, is expected to employ 323 people once the cuts are complete.

The plant’s hourly workers are not represented by a union, and affected employees do not have bumping rights, meaning workers with more seniority cannot take the jobs of those with less seniority.

However, Union Tank Car subsidiary UTLX Manufacturing LLC issued a press release last month that said it planned to reduce production by about 50 percent at two plants.
