11.27.18 - Holmes Responds To GM Layoff Announcement

 

“I was deeply saddened by the gut wrenching news GM officials provided me early this morning of GM Lordstown no longer having a product allocation. We continued to reach out to General Motors to position ourselves to be effective, productive and efficient as they were making decisions for sustainability of the Chevy Cruze and any other future product allocation for the Lordstown facility,” said state Rep. Glenn Holmes, who traveled with Rep. Mike O’Brien (D-Warren) and other Valley lawmakers to the Oct. GM meeting.

“Global industrial profit margin of the Cruze along with gas prices seemed to be paramount in their decision for non-allocation at Lordstown. The hard working men and women at GM Lordstown are the best asset GM has,” added Holmes. “Not to leverage that commodity against any other economic dynamic is a huge mistake. We will continue to press for a new product line as GM moves forward forever reminding them of the quality of this region and of the quality of our workforce.”
