Laid-off Guide workers eligible for GM work

ANDERSON, Ind. Hundreds of workers from a closed Guide Corp. plant could be leaving for jobs at General Motors factories across the country.

Union officials estimate about 400 people who worked at the Guide plant before it closed last year are eligible for positions at GM factories, such as an assembly plant in Kansas that has 300 openings.

Members of the Guide plant s United Auto Workers local, however, believe the former Guide workers should have been eligible for GM openings ahead of the some 3,000 temporary employees the company has hired in the past year.
