WARREN, Mich. (AP) – General Motors Co. says the last remaining 2,500 workers displaced following this month’s flooding are returning to work at its Tech Center in suburban Detroit.
The Detroit News reports the automaker says it’s reopening GM’s Design Center, Design East studios, Engineering Center and Research and Development buildings in Warren on Monday after restoration efforts.
The company says all 19,000 employees and contractors who work at the Tech Center now will be back on the job in Warren. GM had closed many buildings at its Tech Center campus following flooding that filled basements and tunnels connecting facilities.
Many employees worked from home or other sites during the cleanup. Heavy rains on Aug. 11 caused flooding across the Detroit area.
