General Motors is announcing that 650 part-time temporary workers will be converted to full-time roles in January 2021.

The additional full-time jobs will be added to sites in Michigan, Indiana, Texas & Missouri. It’s no coincidence that all of those states are home to the facilities that produce GM’s entire truck and SUV lineup.

The company can’t produce enough of the all new Tahoe/Suburban & Yukon made in Arlington, Texas or the full-size Silverado or Sierra partially made in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Of course, we all know Michigan is home to dozens of GM facilities, including Flint Assembly, which produces the Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD

“We are proud to welcome these team members as regular, full-time employees,” said Phil Kienle, GM vice president of North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations. “Our people are the heart and soul of everything we do and through their hard work and dedication to building quality products, they are taking the next step in their journey with GM.”

GM also claims the new workers will be getting substantial pay and benefit improvements as part of their move to full-time employment.

“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) plans, profit sharing and life insurance coverage.”
