GE plans to add 480 workers to lines manufacturing a variety of major appliances at its Appliance Park manufacturing campus in Louisville, KY, U.S., including for a manufacturing line in a building that had been sitting idle since the 1980s.

GE will be accepting applications for just three days, starting Sept. 28. The new hires will start work in February in facilities producing the GeoSpring water heater, bottom freezer refrigerators, a new line of dishwashers, and a new line of front load washing machines and dryers.

GE is "onshoring" production of the GeoSpring water heater, which was previously made only in China.

In an online report, GE reprinted a quote from IUE-CWA Local 761 President Jerry Carney that appeared in the Louisville Courier-Journal:

"At least GE has enough faith in us to keep trying to turn the place around. We are in a depression in the appliance industry. We will fight to keep raising wages up, but we can’t improve jobs that are not here. We have got to be competitive and make Appliance Park profitable.”

GE is investing more than $1 billion in manufacturing in Appliance Park and at other U.S. manufacturing sites. See: ApplianceMagazine.com's Octobers 2010 article:
