General Motors Company announced Wednesday that more than 1,350 hourly employees at its sites in the U.S. will transition from temporary to regular full-time employment during the first quarter of 2020.
These employees work at 14 GM manufacturing plants and other sites in eight states, including Michigan, Indiana, New York, Texas, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, and Kentucky.
General Motors offers some of the best-paying manufacturing jobs in the United States, including top-of-the-line health care benefits with very low out-of-pocket costs compared to other employers across any industry.
The temporary employees transitioning to regular full-time status will see medical plan cost-share improvements, the addition of dental and vision coverage, company contributions into their 401(k), profit-sharing, and life insurance coverage.
General Motors employs more total U.S. workers than any other auto manufacturer and has invested more than $24 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations over the last 10 years.
According to the Center for Automotive Research (CAR), since 2010 GM has accounted for more than one-dollar of every four invested by automakers in the U.S.
