GM News: GM To Lay Off More Than 600 Workers At Delta Twp Plant

Recommended Posts

With sales of new vehicles slowing down, automakers find themselves making tough decisions in terms of production and jobs. Later this week, General Motors will temporally shut down their Delta Twp, MI plant (home to Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse) for a month to retool to make way for the next-generation models. When production begins back up on June 12th, there could be more than 600 workers without a job due to the third shift being cut.

The Lansing State Journal reports that back in March, close to 1,100 workers were possibly going to be laid off. Workers were notified about this via a WARN notice (an advisory that is required to be sent out to workers under Michigan law). 

"At this point, we anticipate approximately half the number of people reported in the WARN notice to be impacted by the shift reduction," said Erin Davis, GM's Lansing spokeswoman.

Davis didn't give an explanation as to why GM cut down on the number of layoffs. 

Of the 600-plus workers being laid off, 500 could be brought back in the first-quarter of 2018 when production of the Enclave and Traverse is expected to be fully running explained Davis.

China has GM by the balls as requiring build amounts in home and requiring certain other models to satisfy the ability to sell there. No open market unlike how the US always did.
