Talks are set to take place between the leaders of the UAW and Lordstown Motors, on whether the newly formed company will be using the union's workforce in the shuttered GM plant in Lordstown.

UAW Regional Director Rich Rankin said the talks were set up by Senator Sherrod Brown.

The discussions will involve the national president and vice president of the UAW, as well as the CEO of Lordstown Motors, Steve Burns. 

Burns said Brown wanted it done this Friday, January 17, but with a Senate impeachment trial on the horizon, he decided to move those talks to sometime in February. 

If a deal were to go through, there would be the possibility of UAW workers coming back to the plant where they once worked for General Motors, but would now be under a new umbrella.
