Warren GE plant to close

The 179 union workers at the General Electric Ohio Lamp Plant will be out of a job next January or thereafter, the president of its union said Friday.

“The ‘no’ vote pretty much did it,” Scott Moore, president of Local 722 of the IUE-CWA, said late Friday.

Moore had a meeting with company officials Friday afternoon at which they said talks were through and the plant is closing.

Moore said he has not scheduled a meeting with the union membership because they already know the news, and “They know what it means. They voted for it.”

The plant will close no sooner than next January by the terms of the contract, Moore said.

The workers voted against a proposal Monday that would have kept the plant open.
