Newschannel 3 spoke with leaders of SPX Clyde Union Pump to find out the future of its 200 employees.
A company spokesperson sent us this statement, " "SPX is currently in discussions with its employees and the unions that represent these employees regarding the future of the operations in Battle Creek. At this time, no decision has been made."
SPX produces large industrial pumps in just about every industry that helps move massive amounts of liquids. The oil industry is a major client.
Our Newschannel 3 crews were at the plant yesterday and spoke to employees who said the company told employees they'd let them know their future by the end of October.
The employee also said the union was meeting with company leaders Wednesday. Newschannel 3 reached out to the local 46 machinist union for comment and they have not returned our calls.
