Order Reprints

Feb. 5, 2019—General Motors Co (GM) will hire 1,000 workers to build heavy-duty pickup trucks at its plant in Flint, Mich., reported Reuters.

GM said it will give priority to workers laid off elsewhere. GM has come under fire from U.S. President Donald Trump and Midwestern lawmakers for its plans to stop production at five North American factories and cut up to 15,000 jobs. The automaker has said it is trying to find new jobs for 1,500 U.S. hourly workers at the affected plants, according to the report. 

While sales of heavy-duty pickups have grown in the U.S., GM on Tuesday will celebrate the launch of a new generation of heavy-duty GMC and Chevrolet pickups at the Flint, Mich., assembly plant. The plant is now building those trucks for the company.
