Local union president Boehner’s guest tonight


A local Navistar employee will attend President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address tonight in Washington D.C. as a guest of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner.

Jason Barlow is the president of United Auto Workers Local 402, which represents workers at the Springfield truck manufacturing plant. Navistar, which employs about 900 workers, has grown since a new union contract was signed in 2010 and is gaining production from other Navistar plants across the country.

Boehner, R-West Chester, represents Clark County and met Barlow during a tour of the Navistar plant last year.
