    Boy I sure do not miss wearing them ORANGE crush zone vests.. One of the dumbest GM safety ideas.

    they all should have identical work uniforms as assembly workers in other countries. The workers here look messy and don't make good PR for Cadillac.

    The plant I worked at. us electricians had to wear uniforms for safety and flash protection. Most skilled had uniforms to wear where production did not. I can not believe that they are showing pictures of inside the plant. that was a no no and grounds for dismissal..

    Great photos, I would actually like to see a documentary on the build of the ATS. Would like to see the design idea phase, what tuning was done to get more horsepower out of the 3.6 vs the one in the CTS. Just curious, I am really proud of the ATS. I almost bought foreign. (BMW, Audi)

    ^^^^Yeah that....they look more like a bunch of day workers at a cheap car wash.

    Not that there is anything wrong w/that....but come on....GM has been trying to rebuild their image for years....an easy kill would be to have sharp standardized uniforms for their workers?



    Anyways....VW figured it out....











    ....and BMW....even if they have super "cool" overalls.....














    ......and Audi too.....














    ....however Cadillac shouldn't feel bad...Yugo didn't have assembly line uniforms either....and they seemed to do alright!













    Look familiar? Hahah....I know this isn't an assembly line pic....but I couldn't resist....

    BTW OP....nice pics....thanks for posting!

    Uniforms? nah, I work at the oshawa plant (Camaro XTS and regal) and though uniforms would be nice (wouldn't have to find clothing I dont care about) who really cares? how often are factory pictures taken.
