DETROIT (WKBN) – The lawsuit filed against General Motors over job transfers has been put on hold until at least September.
The United Auto Workers filed the suit, claiming GM wouldn’t transfer laid-off Lordstown workers to a plant in Indiana. Instead, GM continued to use temporary non-union workers at the pickup truck plant.
The UAW can’t present legal documents in the case because of a fire at the union’s Detroit office.
So a U.S. district judge in Youngstown put the case on hold Monday until the documents become available.
