GM might take back some Delphi plants



Published: Mon, February 9, 2009 @ 10:58 a.m.

DETROIT — General Motors Corp. is in talks with its former parts arm Delphi Corp. about taking back some Delphi factories that make key parts for GM vehicles, a person familiar with the negotiations said Monday.

Troy, Mich.-based Delphi has been operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for more than three years, and like many suppliers is struggling with the shrinking U.S. auto market. The person said GM is worried that the plants could shut down if Delphi runs short of cash, crippling GM’s production.

Tom Krolopp, a union official with Delphi Packard Electric in Warren, said going back to GM could be good for local operations but he would have to hear more details. Krolopp, who is shop chairman of Local 717 of the International Union of Electrical Workers, said he had not heard that the GM-Delphi discussions were under way.

that is a good sign but look at this g.m. is suppose to be a leader in the industry but the have to understand the more competitors you allow in the market place the more you have to consolidate, and if a foreign competitor can produce a 50 mile p[er gallon car then why is g.m. still way behind in the race? the american auto maker jst does not get it.
