The suit was filed on behalf of over 350 Local 9550 members to prohibit the company from relocating production of Reese Trailer hitches from Goshen to Reynosa, Mexico.
Cequent, a subsidiary of TriMas Corporation in Bloomfield, Mich., has been comtemplating moving production to Mexico because of lower wages. Cequent said a final decision would be reached by Nov. 19.
