The President of UAW Local 16-60 says the plant is expected to shut down by December 22.

The plant makes power seat adjustors for automobiles. At one point it employed 900 people. Layoffs have been gradual, while rumors swirled that the plant would close as part of a company restructuring.

The staff is down to 250 union workers. Lear is moving the jobs to Mexico.
