Fire delays UAW lawsuit against General Motors over Lordstown job transfers

Local News

A fire at the United Auto Workers' Detroit office is preventing the union from presenting legal documents

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.
