The leader of the UAW Local 1112 membership team who is waiting to learn the official fate of the GM Lordstown plant this fall, is among a group of local autoworkers that received voluntary transfer notices this week.

Local 1112 President Dave Green did not want to comment on his decision on Saturday. He says he'll make an official announcement on Wednesday whether or not he'll voluntarily transfer to the GM Bedford Castings Operations plant in Bedford, Indiana. 

Green did say in an interview on WFMJ Weekend Today last Sunday that if he received a notice, he would have to make the best decision for his family, just like many other families have done and may have to do. Green has relatives in the Cincinnati area, which is less than three hours away from the Bedford plant.

In that interview, Green said he was holding out hope for another product at GM Lordstown as a result of contract talks between the UAW International and GM, which officially got underway in Detroit on Monday.

"I'm very hopeful that they're going to be able to get some product into Lordstown. I'm just not going to give up on that," Green said last Sunday.

He told his fellow membership in his weekly video update on Friday that more transfer notices were received by laid-off workers in the Valley this week.

The locations aside from Bedford included the Lansing Grand River, Lansing Delta Township and Wentzville General Motors plants. 

Green went on to explain that the transfer notices are voluntary and will continue to go out.  He says notices went out for five locations last week.
