It's happening a little more than a year after President Donald Trump touted a deal that save some of the plant's jobs.

The company says about 215 people are being let go starting Thursday.

That leaves about 1,100 workers at the plant.

That's down from about 1,600 when Carrier announced plans in early 2016 to move production to Mexico.

Trump frequently criticized Carrier's plant closing plans during the campaign.
