Martinrea to remain open

-A A +A

Martinrea Heavy Stamping and its employees have reached an agreement to remain open.

UAW members voted last week to make adjustments to its agreement with the company that will keep its doors open. Last month, the union had rejected a proposal, and officials had announced a closing date for July.

Although the company’s 200 union employees were split on the issue, with a 55 percent vote in favor of the negotiations, both sides seem hopeful.

The agreement, which passed with 55 percent of the union approving, was ratified Thursday.
