With the auto industry adding thousands of jobs in 2013, Michigan and other states are lobbying carmakers that they're the best location for expansion.
United Auto Workers officials said Tuesday that General Motors Co. is planning to announce at least 2,000 hourly jobs in 2013. Union President Bob King and Vice President Joe Ashton said Tuesday the Detroit automaker would be adding jobs and investments "very shortly."
GM confirmed new jobs are coming this year.
"We're coming back strong, and our new cars and trucks have meant billions of dollars and thousands of jobs created in the U.S.," GM spokesman Greg Martin said.
