The union issued a statement noting that Stellantis claimed to have no money to fix these issues even as it built a new battery plant in the same area. So far, Stellantis has not issued a public statement.

Kokomo Casting was built in 1965; it is the largest die-cast facility in the world.

Update: An agreement has been reached.
