GM to recall 900 workers at Mich. crossover plant

General Motors Corp. says it will recall 900 workers at a factory near Lansing, Mich., because of increased demand for the Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia crossover vehicles. The automaker says it will add a second shift to the Delta Township plant starting Aug. 24 by recalling laid-off workers. Spokeswoman Sherrie Childers Arb says the added shift will stay on indefinitely.

The company also says it has canceled plans to shut down the Spring Hill, Tenn., plant for an additional week in August because of increased demand for the Chevrolet Traverse crossover.

All the large crossovers seat eight and are built on car underpinnings so they are lighter and more efficient than sport utility vehicles.
