According to the National Corvette Museum’s Facebook posting, GM’s CEO Mary Barra is expected to visit the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky today (Thursday, April 25th) to make a major announcement. To add to the importance of the announcement, Barra will be joined by GM Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing Gerald Johnson, the United Auto Workers Vice President Terry Dittes, and local, state and federal officials.
At this moment, it is unknown what Barra will announce, but the rumor mill thinks it will be about adding more jobs, a problem GM had last year after its mass-layoff, not about the Corvette itself. It’s also safe to say the plant isn’t going anywhere soon, as GM just spent $349 million to upgrade the plant.
Another clue that it is about employee count is the museum’s reply to a sarcastic Facebook posting asking if the announcement is about moving Corvette production to Mexico, where the museum replied: “No, quite the opposite.”
