After scrapping a planned strike authorization vote, leaders of the union covering workers at the Mitsubishi plant in Normal have set an informational meeting on Sunday for members. The meeting will run from two to four p.m. on Sunday at Parkside Junior High in Normal.
The company earlier this year announced plans to end production of the Outlander Sport and close the plant next May if it cannot find a buyer.
The contract with the United Auto Workers Local 2488 originally expired in late August but has been extended as bargaining continued.
A strike authorization vote is often a procedural measure used by unions to show the company it has its members behind it in a tight bargaining situation
