GOSHEN – There’s new information on the battle to keep Cequent Towing in Goshen.
The company wants to close the plant and move its jobs to Mexico.
The United Steelworkers Union took the company to court, saying members felt they were entitled to arbitration.
A federal judge recently agreed. The union says an arbitrator has been picked, but there is still no date for negotiations to begin.
Workers hope it will be before February 21 when Cequent plans to begin the layoffs.
The union is also waiting for a ruling on its motion to stop the company from moving equipment out of the plant until arbitration is complete.
