Union president Jones challenges Trump on Carrier

Donald Trump at Arizona rally in March 2016

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

On Wednesday night, Trump posted twice on Twitter, writing, "Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a bad job representing workers".

The CEO of Carrier's parent company meanwhile, confirmed on CNBC that the company still planned to shutter one of its IN factories and send other jobs to Mexico.

"They get to spend this time with family and friends knowing that they have a job with good benefits".

In retaliation the President-elect of the United States, Tweeting from his gilded apartment atop the tower that bears his name, lashed out yesterday at the union.

The president-elect returned fire Wednesday, arguing Jones had "done a awful job" protecting Carrier workers in Indianapolis. "No wonder companies flee country!" the President-elect tweeted.

When Trump joined the negotiations, Jones write that he cautioned his union members about getting their hopes up, and with good reason: 550 people would still lose their jobs at Carrier.

"Now they're keeping - actually the number's over 1,100 people", Trump told a crowd of Carrier production workers, supervisors, and reporters, "which is so great". "I know where you live, '" he said.

Jones says about 800 jobs were saved - 300 less than the 1,100 jobs Trump claims. And he said he's not particularly concerned with threats he's received since his dispute with Trump.

But now, Trump is blaming workers and union dues for that decision. The AP reported the figure covered about 800 union and supervisor jobs that were set for outsourcing to Mexico - and included some 250 headquarters and engineering staff positions which the company had always said would remain in Indianapolis. "We know what vehicle you drive.' You know, things along those lines". Another said: "We're coming for you".

"Trump and Pence, they pulled a dog and pony show on the numbers", he added.

At an April rally, Trump promised to keep manufacturing jobs from going overseas, saying "They're going to call me and they are going to say 'Mr".

Chuck Jones, the president of United Steelworkers 1999, has not been shy to tell publications that Trump broke his promise to save the jobs at the Carrier plant, a pledge on which the president-elect campaigned.

"Bernie, I can't thank you enough for everything you're doing", Jones said.

"Nothing that says they're gonna kill me, but, you know, you better keep your eye on your kids", Jones told MSNBC, according to the Post. "I just called him out on what I felt like he misled the people".
