克利夫兰Ohio – General Motors is extending production of one of the five North American plants it had set to close during the first half of the year,with officials saying the Detroit Hamtramck facility will continue production into January of next year.
GM drew criticism from labor leaders and politicians late last year when it宣布关闭底特律工厂的计划洛德斯敦的设施，俄亥俄州；Oshawa,Canada;沃伦，密歇根；and Baltimore,马里兰州。这五家工厂都生产汽车或汽车零部件，随着市场转向SUV和跨界车，demand for vehicles built at those facilities had plummeted.
美国最大的汽车制造商仍计划关闭哈姆特拉克工厂，but officials say they wanted to ensure availability of several high-value,profitable versions of the凯迪拉克CT6–CT6-V性能版，黑翼双涡轮增压V-8，以及半自动驾驶的超级巡航。Production had been set to end in June.
美国汽车工人联合会（UAW）誓言今年夏天将挑战所有五家工厂的关闭。GM and its workers enter contract talks.UAW President Gary Jones praised the company's decision to extend production at the Detroit-area plant,but he adds that a short-term extension doesn't satisfy union concerns.
"For those UAW brothers and sisters at GM Warren Transmission Operations,GM Lordstown Assembly,and in the GM GPS Baltimore plant in Maryland,琼斯说：“让我重申，美国汽车工人联合会将不遗余力地努力保持你们工厂的开放，我们希望今天的新闻能给我们带来一定的希望。”188bet网址The Canadian union Unifor represents the Ottawa plant.
