 NUMMI bids to add Toyota's hybrid line - East Bay Business Times:   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Bringing hybrid production to NUMMI would be a major coup for the 5.3 million-square-foot union shop, a joint-venture between General Motors Corp. and Toyota Motor Corp. that employs 5,300 workers.
Besides NUMMI, Toyota is considering manufacturing hybrids - all currently made in Japan - at one of five other North American factories, most of which are in the South and Midwest, where costs, ranging from salaries to energy to workers' compensation insurance, are lower than in California.
State and Nummi officials declined to comment about specifics in the proposal, which is being largely headed up by the state's Business, Transportation and Housing Agency led by Sunne Wright McPeak.

 UAW workers push back at NUMMI
Some of the picket signs read: “I thought this was NUMMI, not screw me,” “No raise for five years?” “Slave driver!” and “I can’t be a temp forever.” The latter sign referred to NUMMI’s introduction of temporary workers over the past year.
The four-year contract just approved by the membership includes: a $3,000 signing bonus and $1.61 cost-of-living allowance fold-in the first year, a 3 percent lump sum the second year, a 2 percent wage increase the third year, and a 3 percent wage increase the fourth year.
The worst concession, I believe, is the green light for temps, who were accepted over the past year by the union as an alternative to management threats of outsourcing hundreds of jobs.

 News: Pontiac's Wagon Versions to Go Vibe-bye; What of NUMMI? - Jalopnik
The Vibe, also sold as the Toyota Matrix, is the product of NUMMI, a joint-venture between GM and Toyota based in Fremont, California.
The Vibe, reported to be sticking around through 2007, would be the last GM product produced at NUMMI, which also handles the Corolla, Tacoma pickup, Matrix (and its Japan-only counterpart, the Voltz), barring a new model set for the plant.
NUMMI's California location and Unionised workplace may not be a good 'fit' for Toyota's North American plans, but they need more production capacity, and the NUMMI factory has some space for expansion and a very productive workforce.
