Nooses And “Whites Only” Sign Found At GM’s Toledo Plant – Company Offering $25,000 Reward For Information

Nooses and a “whites only” sign were recently found at a General Motors production plant in Toledo, Ohio.

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz released a letter stating the company is investigating the matter and is offering a $25,000 reward for additional information that leads to the identification of the person(s) responsible.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Nine black employees sued the plant last month, alleging racial discrimination and harassment, including employees’ used of the “N-word,” graffiti that claims a bathroom as “whites only,” nooses hung from the ceiling, and derogatory nicknames.

GM has a “zero tolerance” policy for discrimination and racism.

The auto manufacturer posted a number of tweets last month regarding the incident as well as its goal to adopt inclusiveness:

Mayor Kapszukiewicz said he has met with executives from GM North America to discuss the allegations:

“During the meeting with GM leadership, I expressed my concern regarding employees feeling safe and supported when reporting these types of incidents and ongoing efforts to ensure a workplace culture that is free from discrimination and has a ‘no tolerance’ policy for racist acts.”
