Mercedes-Benz USA LLC has offered employees with 10 or more years of service packages to leave the company.
The Montvale, N.J., sales unit would not say how many employees are eligible or what targets it has set for reducing its 980-employee work force.
"We are part of DaimlerChrysler. We are trying to meet the same objectives in terms of increasing efficiency," spokeswoman Donna Boland says. "This is a voluntary separation package."
Employees have until midmonth to make a decision.
