GE CLOSES BLOOMINGTON, IL PLANT
GE announced plans to gradually phase out the facility one year ago.
At the time it employed 96 people.
Workers there say GE plans to retain ownership of the building, and keep on about ten workers from communications and other departments.
They say many others are transferring to plants in Iowa and other neighboring states.
When it opened in 1955, the Bloomington plant employed over 1,000 people.
