The company says Sotero Ramirez and Robert Lemon downloaded thousands of files of valuable and confidential information in the days leading up to their resignations, amounting to theft of company property and a violation of their non-disclosure and non-competition agreements.
Indianapolis-based mechanical contractor R.T. Moore Co. Inc. expects to create 40 jobs as part of the project, with average wages of about $32 per hour.
Twelve of 18 manufacturing industries contracted in October, led by primary metals, clothing and textile mills.
The deal, which includes modest improvements in pay for new employees and promises that the company will bring full-time temporary workers on permanently, passed this week after being voted on by GM’s 47,000 workers.
Some workers question why union leaders agreed to let General Motors close three factories, wondering if corruption inside the UAW influenced the decision to side with the company.
Despite the monthly decline, factory output actually increased during the recently ended third quarter after falling for the first six months of the year.
The deal was hammered out after months of bargaining but won’t bring an immediate end to the strike by 49,000 hourly workers. They will likely stay on the picket lines for at least two more days as two union committees vote on the deal, after which the members will have to approve.

As the United Auto Workers’ strike against General Motors stretches into a second week, the company and striking workers aren’t the only ones getting squeezed.
Consumers this week will start to see fewer trucks, SUVs and cars on dealer lots as the two sides haggle about wages and profit sharing, new product for factories that GM wants to close, and use of temporary workers.
One of the main sticking points is health care. GM is looking to cut its costs, but workers say they shouldn’t have to pay more when the company is making billions in profit.
