Guide workers ratify compensation, closing agreement

February 2, 2007

United Auto Workers members have “overwhelmingly” approved a plan that attends to labor concerns as Guide Corp. shutters its Anderson and Monroe, La., plants six months ahead of schedule. Employees can pick from seven options that include transfers, buyouts, layoffs and retirement, according to The Herald Bulletin of Anderson.

The Pendleton-based maker of car taillights employed 1,200 at the Anderson site before it was closed suddenly Jan. 12—the result of Guide’s losing a General Motors contract.
