General Motors has announced it will invest $552 million into three New York and one Ohio manufacturing facility. The investment will support the production of future engines and vehicles at the four key facilities in both states while creating and retaining jobs.
New York will receive $336.66 million in total and will be dispersed among three locations:
- Tonawanda Engine – $295.9 million for future engine production, 857 retained and 67 new jobs
- Lockport – $31.86 million for components. 320 retained jobs (including 13 salaried)
- Rochester – $5.9 million components, 20 retained jobs
The Parma, Ohio metal center will receive a $218 million investment for new presses, dies and sub-assemblies. This investment retains 140 jobs.
“The UAW’s negotiations with GM to reinvest in the Tonawanda, Rochester, Lockport and Parma plants have paid off not only for our members but also for those communities. Our strategic bargaining efforts will keep and grow great American auto manufacturing jobs in places that have seen too much manufacturing disappear and will solidify the job security our members deserve.”
