More Bowling Green GM workers take buyouts
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — More General Motors Corp. workers will soon be absent from the company’s Bowling Green Assembly Plant.
Sixty-eight employees there recently accepted a company buyout package, including local UAW president Eldon Renaud.
He has worked for GM since 1968 and tells the Bowling Green Daily News that something in your head tells you when it’s time.
Company spokesman Tony Sapienza says that about 7,500 GM employees accepted the package companywide. The buyouts will allow the company to bring back some laid-off workers, depending on an individual plant’s volume and demand for workers.
Renaud says that at the Bowling Green plant, the recent announcement of an additional five-week shutdown prompted many to take the buyout.
The Bowling Green plant makes the Corvette and the Cadillac SLR.
