General Motors Company will Cut the Second Shift
General Motors Co. will cut the second shift at its Lansing Grand River assembly plant starting in January because of low sales of the Cadillac ATS and CTS cars made there.
The Detroit carmaker said about 350 hourly production workers will be laid off when the plant begins operating with a single shift.
Gm said the layoffs are expected to be temporary.
The second shift should return when production of the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro moves to Lansing. Analysts predict the Camaro will launch in the fourth quarter of 2015.
