GM reported to be hiring team leaders at plant

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- A union official says about 60 team leaders will be hired in about two weeks for the General Motors plant in Spring Hill, Tenn.

Mike Herron, United Auto Workers 1853 bargaining chairman, told Maury County commissioners the workers will be involved in the production of the Chevrolet Equinox. According to The Daily Herald, there also will be numerous jobs in the future for local citizens to fill. Herron said he had no estimate of the number.

In 2009, 2,500 workers were dispersed to other plants across the country when GM idled the plant. Before that, the Saturn car was produced at the facility.
