The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers are calling on President Donald Trump to save jobs in Western New York.

The union sent a letter directly to the President asking for his assistance in protecting 250 jobs at Dresser-Rand in Wellsville.

Dresser-Rand's parent company, Siemens Corporation, notified the union in February that the plant would shut down by the end of 2020.

The union is now asking Siemens to reconsider its decision to close the Wellsville plant and any other facility that it plans to close in the United States.
