Our partners at 21 Alive WPTA in Fort Wayne report GE spent the last few weeks considering union proposals before deciding to move forward with plans to leave the city. Ninety workers are expected to lose their jobs as the operations are consolidated with locations in Mexico.
The decision well end GE's presence in Fort Wayne, which goes back more than 100 years.
