COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (AP) - A union official said about 135 people will be out of work as a northeastern Indiana auto parts factory shuts down.
It will be the second time in a year that Fort Wayne Foundry Corp. has closed its Columbia City plant. The company restarted the factory in July, weeks after it laid off more than 600 workers by closing plants in Fort Wayne and Columbia City.
United Auto Workers Local 2242 vice president Dave Moore said it was told by the company that General Motors was moving the work to Mexico.
The foundry makes water pumps and other parts for GM.
