Barra prepares for DC gauntlet

Barra to meet with lawmakers from afflicted states
Maryland delegation: decision to shutter propulsion plant demonstrates "extremely poor corporate citizenship”


GM spokesman Patrick Morrissey would not confirm the meeting date, but said in an email: “I know there are plans/schedules being developed for separate meetings with members from different states.”

The White Marsh transmission and electric motor plant, which is in Ruppersberger’s district, employs about 300 people. Workers there were told a week ago that the plant will not receive any new work after April. The company’s decision surprised and angered not only Maryland’s federal lawmakers, but state and local officials, who said GM gave them no warning about the decision.


Maryland lawmakers challenged the White Marsh decision in their letter.

“We believe that White Marsh’s highly skilled workforce, modern facility and experience with production lines, from electric motors to transmissions, can and should be repurposed to meet GM’s new business objectives,” the letter said.
