General Motors Putting 750 Laid-Off Employees Back to Work in Flint, Michigan
"Adding a third shift is a response to customer demand for heavy-duty pickups, which most people use to tow, haul, and plow," said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. "Equally importantly, it brings jobs and a needed economic boost to the Flint area."
The first wave of workers will begin assembling the vehicles in the second quarter of the year, with additional employees arriving in the third quarter, when the third shift is expected to begin work.
GM will begin hiring by recalling Flint Assembly workers who were laid off. As part of the UAW GM National Agreement, the remaining workers will be tapped from laid-off area employees in Orion, Willow Run, and Warren.
