GM may find jobs for laid off workers at other factories
There may be more jobs available at truck and SUV factories where sales are growing.
DETROIT — The head of the United Auto Workers union says about 2,000 General Motors factory workers who face layoff in January could be placed at other company factories.
President Dennis Williams said the UAW is talking with GM, and there may be enough jobs for all the workers but he’s not sure yet.
GM announced it would indefinitely lay off third-shift workers at two car factories in Ohio and Michigan due to falling demand. But there may be more jobs available at truck and SUV factories where sales are growing.
GM confirmed it’s talking to the union about jobs for laid-off workers but says nothing is finalized.
One spot may be an engine plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, where GM says it will add 800 jobs.
