JACKSON — Consumers Energy says it is expanding its workforce to build and replace gas pipelines and plans jobs fairs this weekend in Flint and Battle Creek.

The unit of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says today it’s seeking applicants to fill 144 positions, and it initially filled 150 jobs to carry out pipeline work in Michigan this year.

The jobs are part of a planned $60 million investment in gas pipeline work this year. In 2014, that investment is expected to be $116 million.

Consumers Energy plans the job fairs in Flint and Battle Creek on Saturday. Additional information is posted on the utility’s website.
