Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement today in response to reports of an agreement that would keep the Warren Lamp Plant open:

“I am pleased that General Electric and the IUE-CWA have reached a tentative agreement to keep Warren’s Ohio Lamp Plant open. I have been working closely with the company and the union to find a way to continue the work that is being done there. I am optimistic that we have come to a deal to which all parties can agree.

“I recently participated in the Rally for the Valley on Courthouse Square in Warren and called for continued investment in America’s manufacturing capacity. This agreement is significant in that it keeps workers on the job and builds new products. We need to continue the fight to keep manufacturing jobs in our local communities.”
