FRANKFURT, GERMANY (AP) - Daimler AG says it’s considering cutting working hours at some of its car production plants in Germany as the economic gloom pushes down sales.

The company said Thursday it may scale back hours at Mercedes-Benz car manufacturing facilities in Sindelfingen, Berlin, Bremen and Duesseldorf. It says company officials have met with employee representatives to talk about the slowdown in sales.

Company spokeswoman Marina Krets tells The Associated Press, "Talks regarding the locations will be continued, with the goal to have a concrete plan in December."
