GM To Shut Down Second Shift At LGR
wilx.com is reporting that General Motors will shut down the second shift at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in January 2015. According to the article, approximately 350 workers will be laid off. The workers are expected to return to the line once production of the new generation Chevy Camaro begins, but GM has not given a firm date as to when that will be. An article at lsj.com suggests that may come in the fourth quarter of 2015, but that is purely speculation from industry experts. The lsj.com article also states that the laid-off workers would be hourly wage workers, based on seniority. The automaker cites slow sales of the Cadillac ATS and CTS for the temporary layoffs. Both vehicles are made at LGR.
