A union spokesman at the General Motors plant in Spring Hill says the 2,500 employees there have been told the plant will be idled.

Longtime United Auto Workers Union worker and local 1853 newspaper editor Todd Horton said Monday morning resumption of production would depend on market conditions.

Horton said employees don't know for how long production will be shut down, but work is scheduled to end beginning in the fourth quarter of the year. He said assembly of the Chevrolet Traverse is being moved to a plant in Lansing, Mich.

Employees of the Spring Hill plant were told Monday morning after reporting to work.
General Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday in New York.

    Didn't a lot of the workers at Spring Hill move down from Michigan in the first place?

    Spring Hill people can blame Sen. Corker for that.
