Brown: Warren GE plant tentatively to remain open



Published: Thu, March 28, 2013 @ 1:21 p.m.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 722, which represents the General Electric Ohio Lamp Plant on North Park Avenue in Warren, has reached a tentative agreement with GE to keep the plant open open.

The company issued an intent-to-close notice in January for the plant, which employs about 200 people.

Scott Moore, president of the Local 722, said U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown was instrumental in moving the deal forward.

The news came after a conversation Brown had with GE Chief Executive Mary Rose Sylvester on Wednesday. Late last week, Brown spoke to Sylvester about reconsidering the proposal from Warren workers as an alternative to closing the plant.

In a statement Brown said he was working tirelessly to keep the plant open.

That's good news, anytime jobs loss is avoided it's a plus. I wish GE would shift more work back to this country.

They can make CFL bulbs in Warren as easily as they can in China.
