FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

It's official, third-shift workers have started punching the clock at Flint Assembly.

After a standard six-minute team meeting, the line started at 11:06 p.m. Sunday and the first truck, a Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD, rolled off the line.

The shift is staffed by about 750 hourly and salaried employees, some of whom transferred from the other two shifts.

The General Motors plant produces the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups.

The additional shift was added because of demand for the trucks.
