U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown calls on GM to find new jobs for laid off workers at Defiance plant

Following General Motors Company’s (GM) announcement that it will no longer manufacture nodular iron parts at its foundry in Defiance, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) called on GM to find new jobs within the company for the 157 employees facing layoffs. In a letter to CEO Mary Barra, Brown encouraged her to harness the skills of the talented workforce currently at the Defiance foundry as GM develops new product lines. Brown’s statement, in part, said “My top priority is ensuring that General Motors does right by the loyal and hardworking employees affected by the closure of its iron casting division and by the Defiance community.”
