Kinki Sharyo will keep plant in Palmdale, expand

Postby kaitoku » Thu Nov 27, 2014 12:59 am

Kinkisharyo International reached an agreement on Tuesday with labor and community groups that will keep light rail manufacturing jobs in Palmdale and not take them out of state.

Behind-the-scenes talks between the Japanese company, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local No. 11, and Jobs to Move America Coalition were facilitated by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in the weeks after Kinkisharyo said in late October that it would look outside California to build a manufacturing plant for producing light rail cars.
