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. Depending on negotiations and economic conditions about 950 employees in Erie could be impacted from October of this year through 2014.

GE Transportation builds coal mining equipment and has been hit by a slump in the mining business.

Local unions say nonunion employees in Fort Worth earn substantially less than their union counterparts in Erie.
