What the Stellantis Plant announcement means for …
BELVIDERE, Ill. (WTVO) — Stellantis announced they won't be closing their Belvidere plant, but keeping it idle.
This came as a shock to the more than 14-hundred employees that will be getting laid off. in the recent bargaining agreement between the union and company, it was put in place that the plant couldn't officially close.
Now that they've made an official announcement that they are essentially going to idle us which is an easier way of saying close because of the collective bargaining agreement they can't close us during the terms of this agreement," said Timothy Ferguson the Belvidere Shop Chairman.
