General Motors adding two shifts and jobs
to Detroit-Hamtramck plant, adding up 
to 2,500 jobs.
Riding America-based manufacturer wave, big three automaker General Motors (GM) is adding two shifts and about 2,500 hourly and salaried jobs


The positions will be located at Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, building the new Chevrolet Malibu mid-size sedan, the next-generation Impala large sedan, Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera electric cars.

Announcing the two new shifts on Wednesday, May 25th, General Motors will also invest $69 million in tooling and equipment to support the next-generation Impala. 
"Filling this plant with new work is very satisfying because GM is dedicated to helping rebuild this city," GM North America President Mark Reuss said at the plant Wednesday. "We are confident in the flexibility of the plant, the excellence of our workers and the great cars assembled here."
The jobs will be filled by laid-off UAW members first, with the possibility of new hires to follow.
“Given the competitive nature of the auto industry in the United States, the bar for success is placed very high,” said Joe Ashton, UAW vice president-GM Department. “The members of UAW Local 22 soar over the bar every day by demonstrating their flexibility, hard work, and their intense focus on the customer."
