Jobs effort in Jackson
(2008-05-14)
(WOUB) - City leaders in Jackson are hopeful they can work out an agreement to bring jobs back to the area.

Three-hundred people lost their jobs when Meridian Automotive closed their plant.

The company has a lease on the building that's good until 20-15.

Jackson Mayor Randy Heath says getting a new tenant there depends on doing a deal with Meridian.

Meridian shut down the plant after a contract dispute with the Steelworkers union.
