Funds will create more than 800 jobs in accordance with UAW agreement
The company said Wednesday that it will create nearly 800 jobs at the Spring Hill Manufacturing Plant as part of the new high-efficiency engine program and other modernization initiatives.
The automaker’s 2015 contract with the United Auto Workers union said that Spring Hill would receive at least 700 new jobs as part of $1.9 billion in investments in U.S. facilities during the four-year agreement.
The Spring Hill complex south of Nashville has about 2,300 hourly employees, according to GM’s website. It makes the new Cadillac XT5 midsize SUV and two four-cylinder engines. It will start producing the GMC Acadia midsize SUV later this spring.
