FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The United Auto Workers is suing General Motors for not transferring workers to the truck assembly plant in Fort Wayne.
The UAW filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday.
In it, the union claims GM is using temporary workers at the Fort Wayne plant instead of workers from the Lordstown, Ohio plant, which recently closed.
The UAW said that violated its agreement with the company.
However, a GM spokeswoman told FOX 55 in a statement it "started the process to bring about 50 Lordstown employees to Ft. Wayne to fill some of the positions that had been covered by temporary employees. In fact, about 35 Lordstown UAW members will be in place by the end of January."
