Report: GM may move 1,500 employees from Renaissance Center

The Free Press is reporting that General Motors is seeking a state tax break to keep corporate staff positions at its downtown Detroit Renaissance Center. 37 percent of employees not covered by the tax credits, roughly 1,500, could be transferred to other GM facilities in south Michigan. The GM Renaissance Center has roughly 4,000 employees.

GM spokesman Greg Martin said that the automaker is evaluating plans to consolidate its downsized workforce.  He said the company has “nothing to announce at this time.”

GM’S CEO Fritz Henderson confirmed on Monday that the decision is imminent and that RenCen would remain the company’s headquarters.
