Federal-Mogul to Close Greenville, Mich., Auto Bearings Plant

According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, Federal-Mogul was seeking $5.35 million to $5.5 million in wage and benefit concessions in order to keep the plant open and maintain the plant's 310 jobs.

SOUTHFIELD, MI — After plant workers at Federal-Mogul’s Greenville, Mich., auto bearings plant rejected a contract that would cut wages, health benefits and vacation time, the company has announced it will move the plant’s production elsewhere.

According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, Federal-Mogul was seeking $5.35 million to $5.5 million in wage and benefit concessions in order to keep the plant open and maintain the plant’s 310 jobs.

The tentative agreement reached on June 3 would have cut wages by $1.19 an hour over four years, reduced paid holidays by four days a year and increased employee health insurance and prescription drug costs, according to a published report. Members of the United Auto Workers Local 2017 rejected the deal on Sunday.

Representatives at Federal-Mogul said the company hopes the plant’s employees will reconsider the contract before it expires on July 23. The company did not indicate where production would be moved if the union does not reconsider the offer.
