INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Rexnord Bearings has officially decided to pull out of Indianapolis and move hundreds of jobs to Mexico, according to United Steel Workers Union President Chuck Jones.
Jones said the union met with Rexnord officials today. He said the company decided to move forward with its plans to have 300 union jobs and 75-80 supervisory jobs moved to Mexico.
According to Jones, the manufacturing company cited the wage difference as the reason they are moving. In Indianapolis, workers were making $25 per hour, plus benefits. The workers in Mexico will be making $2.50-$3 per hour, plus benefits.
The move is tentatively set to begin in April and be done by June 2017. More details on dates and times are expected Tuesday.
