Please sign this petition and help our family and thousands of families livelihoods that are dependent on the continuance of the operations of Toyota car manufacturing plant. We ask that you also PLEASE send this to EVERYONE you know, every signature counts!
For a quarter-century, the New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. vehicle plant, which employs 4,700 workers, was a joint venture between General Motors
. But the NUMMI venture now circles the fringes of a whirlpool. GM
, while working through bankruptcy, abandoned NUMMI, and Toyota says GM's departure has forced it to explore all options, ranging from going it alone to shutting down the factory. The closure of NUMMI would not only affect the 4700 workers at the plant, but would have have a ripple effect on as many as 35,000 jobs. The health of a number of local economies across the state would suffer loss of jobs, jobs that are indirectly tied to the plant through suppliers, vendors and small-parts manufacturers throughout the state.
Regarding the NUMMI/Toyota plant in Fremont
Thousands of people in California want Toyota to continue operations at the Fremont auto plant. The Bay Area provides skilled and enthusiastic workers who want to keep their jobs and others who want to gain employment in the auto industry. California, the nations largest population offers an excellent environment for Toyota's plant because of its love of environmentally friendly cars. Toyota should produce cars in California because Californians are the largest buyers of cars in our nation.We are enclosing a petition reflecting thousands of signatures of people who desire Toyota to stay in Fremont Ca.
We respectfully thank you for all the employment you have provided to all of our people over the past years. Please keep Toyota Manufacturing in Fremont Ca.
