Kaptur leads House colleagues in letter inviting Trump to visit idled GM facilities and workers in Ohio and Michigan

WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec 7, 2018: Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) has sent a letter with four colleagues to President Donald Trump, formally asking him to visit the communities impacted by General Motors’ decision to idle several North America plants.

The letter was also signed by Rep. Debbie Dingell (MI-12), Rep. Tim Ryan (OH-13), Rep. Joyce Beatty (OH-03) and Rep.-Elect Andy Levin (MI-09).

“Respectfully, we invite you to join us to visit the Lordstown Assembly, Warren Transmission, Brownstown Battery, Baltimore Operations and Detroit-Hamtramck plants, to meet the workers who will soon receive pink slips. This idling will impact over 14,000 workers, including the layoff of 3,300 production workers in the United States and 2,500 in Canada, and another 8,000 salaried employees,” the members wrote.

“We urge your Administration’s intervention in every manner possible to seek both short- and long-term remedies for these workers, the auto-part supplies that will also be impacted, and the communities sure to be severely impacted by these job losses,” the members continued.

“Our communities need deliverance on your promises to invest in and restore America’s manufacturing might and to put an end to the outsourcing of American jobs. We will work with you and your Administration to reinvest and modernize American auto manufacturing. Thank you for review of this urgent request,” the members concluded.

The letter comes after Ms. Kaptur, joined by several of her colleagues, held a press conference on November 29 and issued a call for immediate action from Trump.
