Judge denies request by union to halt Cequent's move to Mexico


— A federal judge has denied a union request that would have prevented Cequent Towing from moving its Goshen operations to Reynosa, Mexico.

“The court sympathizes with the Union members who may be laid off and/or ultimately lose their jobs in Goshen, but must conclude that the Unions haven’t established the irreparable harm or balance of hardships necessary to support the entry of a status quo injunction,” U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Miller wrote in a Wednesday ruling.

Cequent is owned by Detroit, Mich.-based TriMas Corp. Company officials announced plans to close the Goshen plant last year.
