Statement of UAW Vice President Mike Booth on GM’s Announcement of $20.5 Million Investment into Memphis CCA, Ypsilanti Processing Center and Davison Road Processing Center
Our union applauds GM’s announcement of $20.5 million investments into the Memphis CCA, Ypsilanti Processing Center and Davison Road Processing Center, a decision that makes clear that our members are part of the future growth of General Motors.
These investments will make the jobs of our members at Locals 2406 (Memphis, Tennessee), 174 (Ypsilanti, Michigan) and 651 (Burton, Michigan) safer and more secure. This is happening because UAW members have a proven record of skill, experience and quality that has contributed to the success of GM.
This announcement comes on the heels of other recent investment announcements from GM. We will continue to advocate for more investments into all of our facilities as all UAW members at GM are a part of the company’s success and deserve no less.
