UAW Local 1485 president says corporate greed is behind company’s threat to move jobs to Mexico 

GRAND RAPIDS January 6, 2016– Dematic, a logistics and supply chain company with a long history in Grand Rapids, announced today that they are considering laying off more than 300 of its workers and moving operations to Mexico.

Scott Wahlfeldt, president of UAW Local 1485, which represents the workers at Dematic’s Plymouth Road facility, says this is nothing but corporate greed driving this threat to relocate.

“[UAW Local 1485 President] Wahlfeldt told the Grand Rapids Press this is less about staying competitive and more about the company trying to dodge taxes and avoid contract negotiations with employees.”
