TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding General Motors' announcement on idling plants and statements of redeploying employees ("Barra to meet with U.S. lawmakers over GM job cuts," autonews.com, Nov. 30), I as well as many others have been awaiting transfers for several months to facilities with openings that GM continues to fill with temporary employees. GM is now recruiting more temporary employees.
So, in making statements of transferring employees, GM only feels the need to transfer us to facilities that are very far from our homes. To allow seniority employees to transfer out would allow laid-off seniority employees to return to work and receive benefits that GM seems intent on preventing them from obtaining.
