Trump addresses local union boss, Lordstown GM closure

President Trump: ‘General Motors Must Get Their Lordstown Plant Open’

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet that the General Motors Ohio Plant should re-open, just ten days after the plant rolled off the last Chevrolet Cruze from its assembly line.The last Cruze rolled off the assembly line a week ago on Wednesday at GM's plant in Lordstown, Ohio, the first of five plants in North America to end production this year are ending U.S. production of the Cruze.

After General Motors announced last November that it would "unallocate" and idle four USA manufacturing plants, it put the company squarely in President Trump's crosshairs.

President Trump reacted via Twitter on Saturday, urging the automaker to act quickly and open the facility back up while praising the USA investments made by their competitor, Toyota.

The plant closed earlier this month, triggering a lawsuit from the UAW of GM, which said GM violated their 2015 negotiated contract.

Contrary to President Trump's claims, Barra has not officially pointed to United Auto Workers (UAW) as the reason for Lordstown's closure. "She blamed the UAW Union - I don't care, I just want it open!"

"General Motors and the UAW are going to start "talks" in September/October". Why wait, start them now!' The president tweeted Monday. GM did not immediately respond to requests for comment late Saturday. "Stop complaining and get the job done!" he wrote on Sunday.

There was initially some speculation about why the Duchess was not wearing her ring, but in reality, there's no cause for concern. Kate Middleton knows a thing or two when it comes to babies. "Hundreds of years from now, Harry and Meghan will be a footnote".

CBS News reported that GM released a statement saying of the plant closures, "We remain open to talking with all the affected stakeholders, but our main focus remains on our employees and offering them jobs in our plants where we have growth opportunities".

In November, GM included Lordstown on a list of four plants in the US and one in Canada that could be shuttered by the end of 2019 if the automaker and its unions don't come up with an agreement to allocate more work to those facilities.

Reopening Lordstown to manufacture another model is not something possible on a whim; Lordstown was retooled in 2012 specially to produce the Cruze, and retooling the plant again for another model would require an investment of tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars-cash GM is setting aside to keep itself technologically up-to-date. "Bring jobs home!" Trump said in a series of tweets Monday, renewing a Twitter tirade he launched over the weekend.

GM is threatening to close plants that build sedans and compact cars because consumers have been moving to sport-utility vehicles for several years.
