GM says it will resume production of SUVs at its plant in Arlington, Texas, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The plant had been shut down due to a strike at American Axle which has disrupted parts supply to a number of GM’s North American plants.

Spokeswoman Wendi Sabo said the first shift will return to work on Monday. The second shift will come back on May 12. The plant employs about 2,500 hourly workers who make the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon.

The Arlington factory had been shut down since April 14 because of a shortage of axles made by American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc.

The United Auto Workers union has been on strike against AAM since Feb. 26 in a wage and benefit dispute.
