ROANOKE, Ind. (WFFT) - Workers are looking at May 18 to walk through the doors of the Fort Wayne General Motors plant again, but not without some concerns.
"There are concerns with the members who have underlying health conditions just like outside of General Motors those same people have questions about getting everything started whether it's too soon or not," President of United Auto Workers 2209 Holli Murphy said.

Murphy said both General Motors and management know this and have guidelines in place.
There will be an orientation when workers return to help with the transition.
"They will be required to wear masks and General Motors sent all the employees a safety packet with what to expect when they get there and masks inside of their packets so they can kind of familiarize themselves," Murphy explained.
Each employee will receive five masks.
Management posted in an employee-only Facebook group that packets containing those guidelines should be arriving in the upcoming days.
Employees with questions are urged to check out that group.
"Our members can go in there and ask questions. They ask that if other people have that same question to hit the like button so they know that there is a lot of weight on that question- that there's more than just one or two people," Murphy said.
