GM Lordstown plans to hire new ‘flex-time’ workers

LORDSTOWN

General Motors Co. Lordstown will hire additional workers by the end of the year, but they won’t be the typical full-time, entry-level or temporary employees.

Dave Green, president of United Auto Workers Local 1714, said the fabrication plant plans to hire 15 new workers by the end of the month under a new “flex-time” label that was agreed upon in the latest local contract negotiations.

“We’ve never done this locally,” Green said. “We’re trying to stay as competitive as we can to make sure the facility stays open as long as it can.”

Flex-timers will be most similar to current entry-level employees and will make the standard Tier 2 rate of $14 an hour. The difference is that they will work 32 hours a week — on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays — instead of the full-time 40.
