11.27.18 - Boccieri Responds To GM Layoff Announcement

 

Mahoning Valley state Reps. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown), John Boccieri (D-Poland), Mike O’Brien (D-Warren) and Glenn Holmes (D-McDonald) today responded to General Motors’ (GM) announced 14,700 layoffs nationwide in the coming months, with plans to end production of the GM Cruze at their Lordstown, Ohio plant March 1, 2019:

“I am angered and dismayed by GM’s decision to abandon its commitment to Mahoning Valley workers after more than 50 years,” said state Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown). “This closure will have far-reaching effects, both in the Valley and across Ohio, as thousands of working families deal with the real consequences of corporate giants who put profits before people. I remain committed to working with local, state and federal officials, as well the UAW and the local business community to ensure every worker affected by this closure has the resources and services they need.”

The Lordstown Complex, which has produced vehicles since 1966, is likely the latest victim in GM’s corporate restructuring which will end production at five plants and eliminate 15 percent of the company’s total workforce.

“Though today might be a tough blow, there is still hope,” Lepore-Hagan added. “With negotiations between the UAW and GM ongoing about the ultimate fate of the facility, I will continue to offer the support of my office and will use whatever means I have to ensure GM retains operations in the Mahoning Valley. The challenge is daunting, but we in the Valley rarely back down from fighting for a good cause. We’ll continue that fight in the months ahead.”

The GM Lordstown Complex employees 1,500 people, with most holding membership with UAW Local 1112.

“I supported the Auto Rescue when serving in Congress with the belief that a strong GM is good for our economic security as well as our national security,” said Rep. John Boccieri (D- Poland).   “It’s disappointing that so many families will suffer economic insecurity with this announcement as well as the threat to our national security - The Lordstown facility would be making our Humvees, tanks or C-130’s if we ever went to war. We are weaker as a community and as a country with this decision.”

 
 

11.15.18 - Mahoning Valley Lawmakers Push For Commonsense Gun Safety As GOP Passes So-called Stand Your Ground Bill

 

Ohio House Democratic state lawmakers today voted against House Bill (HB) 228, the so-called Stand Your Ground bill, a Republican-sponsored effort to loosen gun safety standards by reducing firearm offenses, making it harder to prosecute gun violence cases and preempting local authority to enact commonsense safety protections for Ohio families.

“We live in a culture that is pervasive with violence and a culture that glamorizes gun violence on TV, video games and in the media,” said Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) “This legislation only adds to an already volatile cultural trend that escalates tensions and now will permit violence to be the final solution.”
