Official: GM recalling about 400 workers in Tenn.
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — An official says General Motors is recalling about 400 idled union workers to its Spring Hill plant in Tennessee to build a four-cylinder engine.
An official briefed about the new jobs who declined to be identified because an announcement is pending provided the count to The Associated Press on Tuesday.
GM spokeswoman Sherrie Childers Arb said a media advisory would be forthcoming about a Friday announcement about Spring Hill but she declined further comment.
The Detroit Free Press first reported the decision citing an anonymous source.
GM laid off about 2,000 workers at Spring Hill last year. About 800 of those workers have relocated to GM plants in other states.
Krisher reported from Detroit.
