The Bloomington Normal Community may not yet realize just how valuable Mitsubishi workers have been to the community. The plant is halting production at the end of the month. Mike Matejka of the Laborers Local says the United Auto Workers have been involved in many charities over the years.
Matejka urges the community to help in a salute to the Mitusbishi workers at the plant on Tuesday afternoon November 24th.
He says residents should bring signs thanking Mitsubishi workers for all they have done at 2:30 p.m. that day.
1,200 workers will lose their jobs by next summer when the plant finishes shutdown.
