GM to retrain laid-off workers

The United Automobile Workers and General Motors Corporation Thursday announced a $7 million retraining program for 9,300 laid-off auto workers, reports United Press International.

The project includes a regional training center that will:

* Assess availability of jobs.

* Conduct retraining.

* Assist workers in finding jobs within GM and in other industries.

The program fulfills the GM pledge made in a concessions agreement last year to set up a jobs-training program.

A year ago, the UAW and Ford announced a similar retraining program that is based at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Mich. A similar retraining program is in effect in California to serve laid-off workers at idle GM assembly plants in Fremont and South Gate.
