ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Workers are returning to the General
Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington for the first time in nearly two
months.
The factory's 2,400 employees are set to be back on the assembly
line Monday morning, welding and bolting together Chevrolet Tahoe,
GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicles.
They haven't worked since May 18 after General Motors Corp.
closed 13 North American factories for two months to slash
inventory. The company filed for bankruptcy during the shutdown.
Starting probably in September, a new labor contract will shift
the work week to four 10-hour days. For now, regular eight-hour
days will be in place.
The Arlington plant is GM's only full-size SUV factory.
