Spring Hill plant spokeswoman Kate Neary said Friday that the holiday begins December 24 for GM's 3,481 employees at Spring Hill. She said production at the plant that makes the new Chevrolet Traverse had been set to resume January 5. That date has been moved to February 9. Neary said about two-thirds of employees are involved in production.
