GM To Restart Tennessee Assembly Plant
Reports from Detroit, unconfirmed by GM, cite sources as saying the restarted Spring Hill plant will build a new vehicle and also engage in supplemental production for in-demand vehicles. The plant last built the Chevrolet Traverse fullsize crossover, assisting in production with the Traverse’s “home” plant in Lansing, MI. It is not yet known when the plant would be restarted, but it likely would be staffed with a mix of new and veteran workers. The UAW rank-and-file membership still must approve the tentative contract, which would be in effect until fall of 2015.
