GM announcing engine jobs at Spring Hill plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- General Motors is revving up its Spring Hill plant, starting with a recall of hundreds of idled workers to build four-cylinder engines.

A person briefed about the new jobs has said executives of the automaker are announcing Friday that about 400 workers will be recalled to build the engines for mid-size crossover vehicles.

GM plans to invest millions to build the next generation of the company's Ecotec four-cylinder engine, the person said. The factory already builds three four-cylinder engines.

The automaker laid off about 2,000 workers at Spring Hill last year and about 800 of those workers have relocated to GM plants in other states.
