UAW Region 1-D Director Gerald Kariem says, "It's great day. It's a great day. It's a great day. GM is making a powerball-type investment in Flint."
A plant that's produced more than 13 million vehicles, is about to make millions more.
General Motors starts construction on the new GM Flint Assembly Body Shop. The $900 million project kicked off with an opportunity to see renderings of the future body shop.
The plant was built in 1947 and it employs more than 2,800 workers.
