United Auto Workers who work 1st shift expected to return to Fort Wayne GM Plant on Monday

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Officials with the United Auto Workers announced 1st shift workers are expected to return to work on Monday.

Officials made the announcement on Friday.

They said General Motors was given the okay to start production in North America on May 13th, including plants that have not already reopened.

Officials said workers who worked 1st shift when they were laid off are expected to return with the same shift on Monday, May 18th.

According to a recent bargaining committee report, full-time-temporary employees are approved to return for 1st shift on May 18th. The report said part-time-temporary employees are still under discussion in Detroit, and that they are not to report to work unless they have been contacted by General Motors.

Officials with the UAW said they will continue to discuss with the International Union about when part-time-temporary employees can return.

The Fort Wayne General Assembly Plant is located on Lafayette Center Road in Roanoke.
