W. Pa.'s GE Transportation to move 950 jobs to Fort Worth

 

ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Western Pennsylvania officials say GE Transportation could move as many as 950 jobs to the company's new facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/16MHn3f ) reports that County Executive Barry Grossman delivered the news Tuesday morning.

GE Transportation is Erie's largest employer. The company says in a statement that the proposed transfer of work is subject to a 60-day bargaining process with UE Local 506.
