GM to resume production at Arlington, Texas, SUV plant


DETROIT General Motors Corp. says it will resume production of full-size sport utility vehicles at a factory in Arlington, Texas, that had been shut down due to a strike at a parts supplier.

Spokeswoman Wendi Sabo said Wednesday the first shift will return to work on Monday. The second shift will come back on May 12. The plant employs about 2,500 hourly workers who make the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon.

The Arlington factory had been shut down since April 14 because of a shortage of axles made by American Axle and Manufacturing Holdings Inc.

The United Auto Workers union has been on strike against the Detroit-based parts maker since Feb. 26 in a wage and benefit dispute.
