Mori Seiki’s arrival in Davis has been widely celebrated because it will bring high quality jobs to town. But at least one group is unhappy with their practices thus far.

The Sacramento-area Carpenters Union has been hanging a banner over I-80 since mid September that says: “Mori Seiki Hurts Our Community. Shame on Them.”

The machine tool maker’s new manufacturing plant will be right next to Digital Technology Laboratory Corp. It will likely bring about 150 highly skilled positions to Davis, many of which would likely be filled by UC Davis graduates.
