GM to Rehire 1,900 in Van Nuys

From Associated Press

General Motors Corp. said today that it will restore 1,900 jobs at its Van Nuys plant March 14 by putting both shifts back to work six weeks earlier than expected.

The announcement came as GM announced it will recall about 8,600 workers nationwide to produce an additional 175,000 cars and trucks annually because of rising sales. The night shift at the Van Nuys plant was eliminated Feb. 15 because GM had too great an unsold inventory of the Pontiac Firebirds and Chevrolet Camaros assembled there. At the time, GM said it expected that the plant would operate with only one shift until at least May 2 or until the inventory was reduced.
