Workers at the General Motors Spring Hill Manufacturing facility will produce a right-hand vehicle for export to Australia, bringing more job security to the labor force, UAW Local 1853 Chairman Mike Herron said.
GM revealed Friday it will invest $27 million more into the plant, which employs more than 4,000 workers in producing the Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia and three engines. The Holden Acadia, the Aussie version of the GMC Acadia, will start rolling off the assembly line in 2018.
The decision to produce the Holden Acadia in Spring Hill will retain at least 215 jobs and possibly create new ones.
“Commitments like this enhance the job security for the 2,000-plus team members that we hired locally over the last year,” Herron said. “Our success here at the GM plant is great for the local community and for workers outside the plant, who work for GM vendors and suppliers.”
