GM Bowling Green Expansion on Hold

2009 Saturn Sky

Jere Downs from the Courier Journal: Plans announced last year to move 2,000 GM jobs from Wilmington, Delaware, to Bowling Green appear to be on hold, United Auto Workers Local 2164 President Eldon Renaud said yesterday. "The future does not look good for that right now," Renaud said in an interview of the plan to add the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky to the Corvette factory by 2012. "The talk we are hearing is those vehicles will not be built here." Renaud's comments came as GM announced plans to shave 10,000 from its global white collar staff of 73,000. GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson said it was too soon to discuss how those personnel cuts could affect individual plants like Bowling Green. "We are just starting to roll this out," Wilkinson said in an interview.
