A CEO and a union working together to bring jobs back from China? It's happening in Texas.
An assembly plant in Houston, Texas will soon be buzzing with IBEW workers. Neutex Advanced Energy Corporation, in partnership with Houston Local 716, is relocating its core manufacturing from China to the U.S. Organizer Paul Puente helped seal the deal by paying careful attention to the employers' wants and needs. The IBEW will provide trained workers and help the company market its advanced energy products. In exchange all current and newly hired workers will become members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
