President-elect Donald Trump attacked the United Steelworkers union president who represents workers at Carrier in Indianapolis on Twitter Wednesday night.

Chuck Jones heads up Steelworkers local 1999, which includes the Indianapolis Carrier and Rexnord factories. Both have come under fire from Trump for sending some jobs to Mexico.

 

Michiana’s Native American tribe has begun construction on the first tribal casino in Indiana, just days after receiving sovereign status on 166 acres of land in South Bend.

The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians plans to build tribal housing and government facilities on its new land, too.

But tribal chair John Warren says the casino will play a central economic role when it’s completed in early 2018.

 

As part of its deal with President-elect Donald Trump to retain some Indiana jobs, Carrier pledged to invest $16 million dollars in its Indianapolis factory.

But that investment will go toward automation, according to Carrier parent company CEO Greg Hayes.

Fewer jobs will be saved at Indianapolis’ Carrier factory than originally announced.

The United Steelworkers union told members in a letter Monday that the number of jobs saved is actually 800, not more than 1,100 as President-elect Donald Trump said last week.

Steelworkers Local 1999 vice president Robert James says it means 500 union members will still lose their jobs.
