Senators from Ohio, both Republican and Democrat joined together in meeting w Mary Barra (GM) to discuss GM’s announcement of the closing of the Lordstown (Ohio) assembly plant.
They stated that if GM is planning on all this EV production in the next several years, then they want GM to transition this plant to EV production.
Let’s see what GM decides.
I kinda feel for Mary a bit. She has many obligations to answer to, ie....shareholders , board directors, pension plan, and most of all the UAW.
It would be awesome if UAW and GM could collaborate on getting something done EV wise for Lordstown. Seems like union and company are always at odds. Too much greed and mistrust on both sides.
When Elon wants to get something done he just does it. What a difference between the two.
