We remember the men and women, and their families, who have made the ultimate sacrifice during wartime, and those who gave of their time and commitment during peacetime.

Therefore, on June 12th, the Union agreed to end its strike at Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center and made an unconditional offer to return to work on behalf of all former strikers. The Union intends to schedule a ratification vote as soon as possible on the tentative agreement.

The people of the Mahoning Valley deserve a solid, secure job investment that no start-up, dependent on federal contracts, can bring to the Valley. UAW members and the community deserve a GM product investment at Lordstown."
