FOUNDRY CLOSING
(2007-05-11)
(wgvu) - ALPENA, Mich. (AP) - An Alpena foundry and machine shop that's
been in business nearly 90 years is closing.
Thunder Bay Manufacturing Corporation announced the decision
yesterday. About 80 people will lose their jobs.
Thunder Bay employees have been on strike for more than a week
after contract talks broke down. But company president Joanne
Gallagher says that's not the reason the foundry is closing.
Instead, she says the problem is the struggling automobile
industry.
