GM to save 1,400 Michigan jobs with new plan to build small cars

June 26, 2009

(ChattahBox) — In news whose content and timing should give countless Michigan families a joyful 4th of July, General Motors has just announced it will revive an assembly plant in Orion Township and a parts-stamping facility in Pontiac – both, now in mothballs, to produce a new range of small and medium-size cars.

The final decision, which would restore precious jobs to 1,400+ workers now facing welfare, is only dependent on successful agreements regarding incentives between the car maker and heads of the state.

A source close to the matter has confirmed Orion was chosen after careful debate, and took precedence over GM’s other viable plants in Spring Hill, Tennessee, and Janesville, Wisconsin. Once retooled, the resurrected facility will be home to two shifts of workers on a 24/7 scale, and produce approximately 160,000 new vehicles a year.
