GM transfers workers from Tenn. to Mich. plant


Wednesday, December 16, 2009


DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — About 425 General Motors workers are transferring from a closed Tennessee plant to one west of Lansing.

The Lansing State Journal reports Wednesday that 374 production and about 50 skilled trades workers are expected to be working as early as January at the Delta Township assembly plant. The workers from Spring Hill, Tenn., will arrive as GM prepares to add a third shift at the Michigan plant.

General Motors Co. closed the Spring Hill facility last month and is shifting production of the Chevrolet Traverse to the Delta Township, which also makes the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.

Tennessee officials, meanwhile, say workers displaced by the closure of the Spring Hill plant will be offered job-training help through $1 million in federal grants.
