Some Tucson-based metal workers may get jobs back

The 9th U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco has ruled Greenbrier Rail
Services must reopen its closed Tucson facility and rehire the nearly 30
employees laid off in November 2012.

The Arizona Daily Star reports Greenbrier closed its
Tucson facility last December.

The court lifted the temporary stay a district court put in place and ordered
the company to restore operations at the facility and rehire the affected
workers.

However, some workers from the Tucson facility took jobs at other Greenbrier
locations in other states following the closure.

Greenbrier officials say they’re complying with the court order.

The Oregon-based company provides equipment and repair services to the railroad
industry.
