Mexico's AHMSA threatens further job cuts over dumping

MONTERREY, Mexico, June 24 (Reuters) - Altos Hornos de Mexico (AHMSA), one of Mexico’s largest steelmakers, could cut a further 4,000 jobs if the government does not take radical measures to stop dumping in the industry, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

AHMSA said earlier this month it would cut 4,500 jobs, slash production by 20 percent and suspend 3.9 billion pesos ($251 million) worth of investment, after what it called a drastic fall in prices in the last five months.
