NUMMI workers were at the San Jose International Auto Show, trying to convince Toyota not to close its Fremont plant.

Employees are asking people to sign petitions promising not to buy Toyotas if it shuts down the NUMMI factory in the spring.

Roughly 4,500 employees would lose their jobs in Fremont and the union says as many as another 50,000 more jobs would be lost in industries statewide that supply the plant.
