“I couldn’t look myself in the mirror, and I couldn’t look my members in the mirror ever again by supporting it,” said Lordstown UAW Local 1112 President Tim O’Hara, who is advising many union members to vote it down.
Democrat UAW Local 1112 President David Green ought to get his act together and produce. G.M. let our Country down, but other much better car companies are coming into the U.S. in droves. I want action on Lordstown fast. Stop complaining and get the job done! 3.8% Unemployment!
Just spoke to Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors about the Lordstown Ohio plant. I am not happy that it is closed when everything else in our Country is BOOMING. I asked her to sell it or do something quickly. She blamed the UAW Union — I don’t care, I just want it open!
GREAT NEWS FOR OHIO! Just spoke to Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, who informed me that, subject to a UAW agreement etc., GM will be selling their beautiful Lordstown Plant to Workhorse, where they plan to build Electric Trucks. GM will also be spending $700,000,000 in Ohio...
I say to : tell General Motors if they want to receive another government contract they need to reopen plants in Lordstown, Ohio, and other parts of the country where American workers have seen their jobs eliminated.
American capitalism at work:
--GM workers made $118M in concession to management.
--GM then reaped $157M from Trump's corporate tax cut.
--GM CEO Mary Barra took home $22M in compensation.
--GM closes Lordstown plant, massive layoffs.
Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST! Toyota is investing 13.5 $Billion in U.S., others likewise. G.M. MUST ACT QUICKLY. Time is of the essence!
The shutdown of a General Motors plant in Lordstown, Ohio, where he worked for 25 years has left him and many of his neighbors at sea politically. They tried voting for Barack Obama, then President Trump. Now they don’t know where to turn.
General Motors and the UAW are going to start “talks” in September/October. Why wait, start them now! I want jobs to stay in the U.S.A. and want Lordstown (Ohio), in one of the best economies in our history, opened or sold to a company who will open it up fast! Car companies.....
So no one in Washington should be surprised that the very same day GM laid off workers in Lordstown, Ohio, it announced plans to make the Blazer in Mexico. And now, after taking its tax windfall, GM is eliminating 14,000 American jobs.
The workers at Lordstown are the best at what they do, and it’s clear once again that GM doesn’t respect them. Ohio taxpayers rescued GM, and it’s shameful that the company is now abandoning the Mahoning Valley and laying off workers right before the holidays.
