FREEPORT (WIFR) -- Fresh from their trip to Tampa, Sensata workers are showing no signs of slowing down in the fight to save their jobs. Sensata workers say they will keep fighting for Mitt Romney to hear their plea as they protested outside of the Freeport plant this evening. Sensata workers were joined by Freeport mayor George Gaulrapp to announce that they are not giving up their fight to stop the outsourcing of jobs. Workers have traveled from Tampa to Iowa, to deliver their message personally to Romney. Now they want to get the support of people outside of the community. Tom Gaulrapp loses his job November 2nd. He says this is not just about him.
"I hope that we can continue to raise awareness for people, because we're not just trying to save our jobs here, we're trying to save our children's jobs, our grand children's jobs, our neighbor's jobs, the person in the next town's job, you know because this thing is running throughout America," said Gaulrapp.
Workers say they will keep fighting through the November election. Even with the support of Governor Quinn and Senator Durbin, Sensata workers have yet to hear anything from Mitt Romney. Workers will meet next week to figure out what they will do next. The Sensata plant will close at the end of the year.
