I had heard that Premier may be on their way out, or are already out at Trenton South and GEMA. Seems like additional opportunities for skilled trades and maintenance

I heard that they're going to try having trades run production and fix the machines.

Yes, premier is no longer doing maintenance on machines, they are still however under contract and will be doing building maintenance. Skilled tradesman (no millwrights) were recanvesed from old trenton to go the the new plant because there where 30 additional positions needed. Rumor is the as many as 50 trades postitions are still needed. Any tradesman contacted for these positions please look into the details, you are a prodution worker first and formost over there, and when something breaks you are then a trades person. You are no longer classified as a tradesman or machanical/ electrical tech. They are also forcing lower senoirity tradesman to work the motor assymbly line, not as a temporary postition, but they want as many as 25% of the assembly workers to be a tradesman. The work schedule is that rotating 3 crew 10 hour schedule that has not ever worked any where else, with absolutly no overtime.( so the say). Yes a job is a job and i am going very soon, but if i had the oppertunity not to go i would jump at it. We signed a contract to go years ago and are locked into it.

Interesting to say the least. This was one of the plants that got new work from FIAT too.

Does anyone on here work for GEMA? Are they going to hire soon or are they still working on tooling for the Fiat Fire?

No, The trenton south plant is not getting any work from Fiat, the GEMA plant about 30 miles south is. The trenton south plant was long in the works before Fiat. They plan on putting thier multiair technology in it at some time, but it is a chrysler design and will only be going in chrysler viehicles. (at least for now). The only problem is that they are building an identical plant down in mexico, meaning we have to take what ever crap they give us.

They are still in the retool stage. GEMA is not telling us what changes are going on with the company. Put their are changes. In the past 3 months we have got allot of new management and they are all Chrysler management.(If you did not know anyone that makes a decision in the plant is a Chrysler salary employee, not a GEMA one. If someone can explain to me how it works if a Chrysler hourly employee transfers to the GEMA/Chrysler plant how does the seniority transfers. Do they start off with day one plant seniority?
