Union trying to get Govt help with with FAFO lease payments. Lockheed said they overlooked cost of lease to UTC when they purchased company which is $500,000 a month
Union said substantial layoffs are coming. October is when layoff will begin. Working to keep the bldg open until more work or end of the lease in november 2020.
