Rep. Turner Supports Continued Negotiations Between DHL and ABX and ASTAR
Washington, D.C.- Congressman Mike Turner (OH-03) today led an Ohio Delegation letter supporting continued negotiations between DHL and local employers ABX and ASTAR. The negotiations have begun as a result of the expiration of an exclusivity agreement that would not allow DHL to negotiate with anyone other than UPS and could allow DHL to maintain its international operations in Wilmington.
“I am hopeful that these negotiations will result in an arrangement that is beneficial to all of these companies and to workers throughout Southwest Ohio,” Congressman Turner said. “I will work with the Ohio Delegation and leaders throughout our community to offer any assistance that might be needed.”
Congressman Turner sent the letter with Senators George Voinovich and Sherrod Brown and the entire Ohio Congressional Delegation. Congressman Turner has testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the House Judiciary Committee regarding the ongoing issue at the Wilmington Airpark. Congressman Turner has also worked with the Ohio Delegation to successfully secure retraining and transition benefits for displaced workers in Southwest Ohio.
