While the General hasn't specified its timeline yet, UAW officials say the workers will be back building cars by September. With laid-off employees back at work, GM will be able to start hiring again, though the company didn't provide a timeline for new hires.
The recalls show that General Motors is making progress on its road to recovery after several dire years and the death of four of its brands. According to GM brass, they're starting a third shift of 750 workers at the Flint, Michigan truck plant, 600 for a second shift to build Cadillacs in Lansing, and 1,550 to build small cars in Lake Orion, Michigan.
