General Motors has added and/or recalled 6,900 jobs in the United States since exiting bankruptcy last year. During a radio interview, GM vice chairman Steve Girsky that some of these workers were laid off during the time leading up to The General’s bankruptcy proceedings and were called back in when production was increased.
Michigan accounted for 1,100 of the 6,900 jobs divided between:
- Delta Township plant – manufactures GM’s Lambda-based vehicles
- Brownstown Township battery plant – manufactures battery packs for upcoming Chevrolet Volt
- Bay City Powertrain
- Warren Transmission
GM’s three Canadian manufacturing facilities accounted for hiring and/or recalling 2,700 workers.
How the remaining 3,100 jobs (out of the 6,900) are disbursed is currently unknown, but we sent a question over to the fine folks at GM for some clarification. We’ll update this post as soon as we hear back.
We’re rooting for you, GM. And this is more good news and serves as a sign of great things to come from our favorite automaker![Source: Detroit Free Press]
