INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Workers at an Indianapolis Carrier Corp. factory slated for closure are eager to learn more about a deal President-elect Donald Trump says he reached with the company to stop hundreds of jobs from moving to Mexico.
Those workers and their union have little information ahead of Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s Thursday afternoon visit to the factory. Carrier says the deal will keep about 1,000 jobs in Indianapolis, though that includes headquarters and engineering staff that were likely to stay in Indiana. About 1,400 workers were slated for layoffs.
Carrier employee TJ Bray says workers are excited but worried because they don’t know the details.
United Steelworkers local president Chuck Jones says the union wasn’t involved in any of Trump’s negotiations with Carrier.
