Lured by generous tax incentives and low wages, foreign automakers have steadily increased their footprint in Southern states over the last two decades.

Grievances filed regarding the PTO cash outs with Golden Living have been settled for members at both Linden and Lynnhurst facilities for 75% of the total PTO accruals.  Payouts will be made to members by October 1, 2017, with applicable tax deductions.  Local 1189 will update members of this process and how payments will be received.  In addition, Local 1189 is in the process of preparing proposals with Monarch for collective bargaining and members will be updated as this process moves forward.
