Lordstown union leader 'hopeful' day after GM announcement

Lordstown union leader 'hopeful' day after GM announcement

The assembly plants pegged for closure are Oshawa Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly in Detroit, and Lordstown Assembly in Warren, Ohio. Trumbull County, Ohio, where the village of Lordstown is located, backed him with 51% of the vote after four years earlier giving Barack Obama 60% of the vote. Most of the affected factories build cars that won't be sold in the U.S. after next year.

Saying he's still hopeful that there will be a future for the General Motors Assembly Complex in Lordstown, UAW Local 1112 President David Green sounded more optimistic Tuesday morning than he did Monday when he said that it felt like "a punch in the gut" upon learning that GM planned to halt production of the Chevy Cruze here. "But I love OH", he told WSJ.

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican from Cincinnati, helped shepherd through landmark corporate tax cuts previous year as a senior member of the Senate Finance Committee, of which Brown is also a member.

A few thoughts tonight on General Motors surprise announcement today.a moment of incendiary corporate clumsiness and callousness, and maladroit analysis and strategy that reveals far more about the company than its management would like its investors to know...consider the President of the United States has made it clear to American business leaders that jobs had better return to this country.

GM opened the Lordstown plant in the late 1960s. The Detroit-Hamtramck facility is GM's last in the city, and the Lordstown plant in OH was one of its biggest. But we will all together get the point across to General Motors. "Thousands of families have sacrificed to build GM into what it is today".

The company, which was incorporated in 1908, came back from the brink after its 2009 bankruptcy and federal bailout, returning to profitability in 2010. It would not say how many have accepted the buyouts, but it was short of the company's target because GM said there will be white-collar layoffs. The Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid will also be dropped along with the Chevy Cruze compact (which is sold as the Holden Astra sedan here and built in Korea), which will be made in Mexico for other markets. "It's important for GM to be free to adjust its business accordingly". The cuts are a setback for President Trump who said a year ago in Ohio, "We are going to get those jobs coming back and we are going to fill up those factories or rip 'em down and build brand new ones". The company, calling the move a response to "changing market conditions", said it would get rid of more than 6,000 production jobs and another 8,000 salaried positions.

It was also reported that Curry was hit twice with the first vehicle making an improper lane change and colliding with Curry. Curry's representatives did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's inquiries on Friday afternoon.

"We are right-sizing capacity for the realities of the marketplace", Chief Executive Mary Barra said, adding that the cuts were prompted by auto industry changes.

OH is a critical political battleground in presidential elections. "I was very tough when I spoke to her".

"We're going to continue to explore all opportunities that allow us to be more efficient with our investments, more efficient with our capital", she said.

Barra is expected to travel to the White House on Monday to meet with White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow. "Don't move, don't sell your house", Trump said as the audience cheered.

It was a "shot in the gut", said Green of the announcement, which came to him after a 6:30 a.m. phone call requesting his presence for a 9 a.m. meeting Monday.
