May 03--The chairman of UAW Local 1853 told workers this morning they will be going back to their jobs Monday as scheduled.
The assembly line at General Motors plant in Spring Hill has been idle since April 25. It was closed down because of a shortage of parts from Japan after earthquakes in the island nation.
"I just got out of a meeting with the senior leadership of General Motors," Mike Herron wrote on his Facebook page, "and we will be starting the plant up as planned on Monday, May 9.
"The electronic components that were unavailable due to impact to suppliers from earthquakes in Japan have been secured. Please plan on returning to work May 9 as you were scheduled prior to this part interruption. I will continue to update you on any additional information as it becomes available."
