Trump and the company Carrier struck a deal to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana


President-elect Donald Trump and the heating and air-conditioning company Carrier have reached a deal to keep nearly 1,000 factory jobs in Indiana, the company said on Twitter. 

Carrier, which is owned by the defense contractor United Technologies, said in February that it planned to close two of its Indiana plants. 

The plant in Indianapolis employs 1,400 workers while a nearby plant in Huntington, Indiana, employs 700, according to CNN

Trump tweeted on Thanksgiving saying he was working to get Carrier to keep jobs in the U.S.

This is what the company said after speaking with Trump. 

It's still unclear whether the Huntington plant will be saved and if the 400 additional jobs in Indianapolis will disappear. 

Earlier this year the company said it was planning to send those jobs to Mexico to save approximately $65 million. 

Saving these industrial jobs was a major test for the Trump camp because he campaigned on the promise that he would keep American jobs from being shipped overseas.
