LORDSTOWN — The Global Gamma is coming to the General Motors Corp. Lordstown Complex for the 2010 model year, with the Global Alpha arriving for the 2011 model year, according to a union flyer issued to workers this afternoon.

The cars will replace the plant’s current Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 small cars, which are due to end production in June 2009.

The complex then will switch to the Gamma, which is a four-door notch back, according to the flier from United Auto Workers Local 1112. The Alpha will have two body styles.

FLIER DETAILS:

– Additonally they will receive extensive high tech training as well as the addition of 1,500 new apprentices nationwide.
New Wage and Benefit Levels for New Employees
– Details to be explained at the informational meetings
Non-Core
– Examples of non-core work include but are not limited to material movement, general stores, finished driving, paint mix, chemical management and certain sub-assemblies.
SAP

I wouldn't assume that either the Gamma notchback or Alpha will replace either the Cobalt or G5 in the lineup, just at the Lordstown plant, if this is correct. The Gamma notchback would be the Aveo, the Alpha most probably a G6 replacement.

Yeah, the Cobalt is staying on Delta ("Delta II" to be exact). All this is saying is that Alpha and Gamma vehicles are going to be produced at Lordstown instead of Delta vehicles. It sounds like we are getting a coupe and sedan off of Alpha, I would guess it's a Pontiac. I can't see them producing a Cadillac at a rather old plant that is also going to be producing the Aveo.

The details of this contract makes me want to vomit... particularly in the PDF document link above. Most of it is marketing spin focused on justifying the very existence of the union.

You always post interesting stuff!

That page 11 = :thumbsup:

Some interesting stuff for us to have fun discussing:

Global Epsilon Chevrolet - Epica replacement on swb Epsilon?

CTS Wagon and Coupe - YAY! :)

Zeta products (two styles) - If Impala and Camaro go to Canada as has been talked about, does this mean 2 Cadillacs? Swb and Lwb STS replacement?

A couple of clarifications needed, as far as anyone knows:

* Fairfax, Kan. — Chevrolet Malibu and Saturn Aura continue until 2011, Global Epsilon Buick and Saturn beginning in 2009, Chevrolet large 4-door notchback beginning in 2010.

Impala? :ohyeah:

* Lansing, Mich., Grand River — Cadillac CTS, Cadillac STS and Cadillac SRX continue through 2009, Cadillac CTS wagon and Cadillac CTS coupe beginning in 2009, Zeta products (two styles) beginning in 2011.

STS/DTS replacement and... good lookin out, Griff. I forgot about the Lucerne.

This board acts up... I contend that I was the first to reply to this, but I got a 500 Error. :angry:

*C3XX full-sized truck and heavy-duty commercial cab beginning in 2012

Hmm, will Chevy/GMC have something to compete with the capabilities of the F450 in 2012? Is the "commercial cab" only up to class 3, or beyond into the class 4-5 range?

So what is Global Delta MPV7 at Hamtramck starting in 2009 . I assume this is not the Cobalt/G5/Astra on Delta 2 ? In that list , it looks like the Cobalts are gonna be coming outa Mexico .

Gamma, Alpha, zeta, etc. This seems like a lot of new "stuff". Any one want to speculate what this does to Ford and Chrysler contract negotiations and future competitiveness? Do they have similar plans?
