Celco officials say the union has rejected a proposal that would automate some jobs in the plant.

As many as 500- hourly workers could be affected.

A Virginia Republican whose father was a labor union member.
He still lives in the same neighborhood he grew up in, but he had to leave Virginia to develop a desire to lead Virginia.
The epiphany came 20 years ago, doing ministry work in the Philippines.
