TWINSBURG, Ohio (AP) -- Elected and union officials have planned a rally in northeast Ohio to try to save 1,200 jobs at the Chrysler stamping plant in Twinsburg.
The factory and four other Chrysler plants are scheduled to close by the end of next year.
United Auto Workers Local 122 President Doug Rice says the rally late Monday afternoon was arranged to protest what he calls corporate greed. Rice says workers were misled and understood the plant would be spared as part of Chrysler's bankruptcy court filing and pending takeover by the Italian car maker Fiat.
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown from Ohio plans to attend the rally at the union hall in Twinsburg, about 15 miles southeast of Cleveland.
