EMD - Shuts Down London,Ont Operations

Postby ladder2 » Sun Feb 05, 2012 1:42 am

Caterpiller has shut down all London operations and is going to move the operations to Muncie, Indiana to cut labor costs.
The company claims that Canadian labor costs were double what they intend to pay Muncie workers.
