General Motors to recall 2,000 laid-off workers

According to the United Auto Workers union in the States, General Motors is ready to recall another 2,000 of its previously laid-off workers by September this year. The UAW announced that most of the recalls will affect southern Michigan, where the economic downturn and large scale redundancies had the most impact.

An exact timeline for the recall of the workers hasn’t been specified by GM but UAW officials say the workers will be back building cars in September. GM is also ready to go further and with the laid-off employees back at work, GM will begin hiring again, but exact details haven’t been announced.

This is extremely positive news for the laid-off workers and also General Motors which is making strong progress on its road to recovery.  Several dire years and the death of four of its once iconic brands crippled GM but now a more positive day is dawning. According to GM bosses, they’re starting a third shift of 750 workers at the Flint, Michigan truck plant, 600 for a second shift to build Cadillacs in Lansing, and 1,550 to build small cars in Lake Orion, Michigan.
