San­ders State­ment on Globalfoundries and IBM

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Sen. Bernie San­ders (I-Vt.) is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment last Mon­day after Globalfoundries an­nounced that it will ac­quire IBM’s fa­cil­i­ties in Es­sex Junc­tion: “Amid all of the ru­mors and spec­u­la­tion of the last few months, this has been a very dif­fi­cult pe­riod for the highly-skilled and ded­i­cated em­ploy­ees at the Ver­mont IBM fa­cil­ity. Now, with the pur­chase of the plant by Globalfoundries, a new era is be­gin­ning. We all hope that this new re­la­tion­ship will bring eco­nomic se­cu­rity for the em­ploy­ees and for the en­tire com­mu­nity. I look for­ward to work­ing with the em­ploy­ees, Gov­er­nor Shum­lin and the new own­er­ship to make this new re­la­tion­ship a suc­cess.”
