GM Grand River Employees To Work At Area Plants

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – There could be a happy ending to a story 6 News has been following since December.

General Motors could soon have all 350 employees who were laid-off from the Grand River plant back at work.

The switch to a single shift caused those layoffs.

Many of the workers were transferred to the Delta Township plant and now, some are receiving offers from Flint.

On Monday a GM spokeswoman confirmed the move to bring workers back is part of the workers’ contracts.

Anyone who is laid off is automatically placed in a pool and those workers are the first to receive offers if positions open up.

The spokeswoman said there are still about 100 workers of the 350 who have not been placed.

The United Auto Workers union represents the laid off Grand River employees and they declined to comment because they are still in negotiations with GM.
