"Dozens of workers at a factory in La Pocatiere, Que. have lost their jobs after a theft at a plant in Mexico. French rail manufacturer Alstom confirmed Friday that 70 of its employees will be laid off for at least six months, while at least 50 more workers could lose their jobs in the months ahead. Claude Michaud, the president of the union representing workers at the factory, said wire intended to be used in Montreal Metro cars was allegedly stolen from a factory in Huehuetoca, Mexico on March 7, forcing the assembly line at the Quebec plant to stop. Some of the layoffs announced Friday had been scheduled to take place later in the year, according to the union, but took place sooner due to the theft. "
