GM to close factories in Michigan, Ohio, Canada

GM to close factories in Michigan, Ohio, Canada

The above articles only mentioned five plants. We want to make sure we're well positioned, Ms. Barra told reporters.

"We estimate sedans operate at a significant loss, hence the need for classic restructuring", he wrote. Some will take buyouts while others will be laid off.

He said instead, the province will immediately bolster unemployment insurance and retraining measures to help the almost 3,000 workers who will lose their jobs.

Unifor, Canada's largest private sector union, said in a prepared statement that it does not have complete details of Monday's announcement, but it has been informed that there is no product allocated to the Oshawa plant past December 2019.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford was less optimistic, saying GM told him there is not much the government can do.

While industry-wide passenger vehicle sales were down 13.2 percent through the first nine months of the year, pick-up truck and SUV sales rose 8.3 percent.

"Today our generation is facing a new Black Monday in the Mahoning Valley", Congressman Ryan said, "GM's announcement is devastating for the men and women working at Lordstown and everyone here in the Mahoning Valley". The company estimates that the cuts will save it $6 billion by the end of 2020. Unifor does not accept the closure of the plant as a foregone conclusion.

Numerous cars that General Motors says it will cease producing were hailed as major break-throughs when introduced.


"This is a warning and we all must be concerned about protecting jobs and keeping them in this country".

Trump said he was being tough on Barra. Barra said the company will double resources dedicated to electric and self-driving vehicles over the next two years.

"I implore President Trump to keep his word when he came to the Mahoning Valley a year ago and promised jobs were 'all coming back, '" he said in the press release.

"I promise you they will be back on their feet", Ford told the Ontario legislature.

Both U.S. vehicle assembly plants scheduled to stop production next year now build slow-selling passenger cars.

The United Automobile Workers (UAW) union vowed to "confront this decision by GM through every legal, contractual and collective bargaining avenue open to our membership".

The Auto Union is precisely one of GM's problems.

The Oshawa closure would be a big deal for Canada.


"I can't believe our president would allow this to happen", she said Monday. I spend more time around them than my own family.

In 2005, GM cut 3,750 jobs with the shutdown of the Oshawa No. 2 plant and the elimination of a shift at its other vehicle line.

"GM owes the community answers on how the rest of the supply chain will be impacted and what consequences its disastrous decision will have on the Mahoning Valley and our state", he said in the press release. LaCrosse and Volt production will end March 1, while CT6 and Impala production would stop June 1.

Altogether, GM has five vehicle factories with plenty of unused capacity in Kansas City, Kansas; Lordstown; and Detroit-Hamtramck, Lansing, and Orion Township, Michigan. Now the full-electric Chevrolet Bolt can go up to 238 miles on a single charge.

In addition, GM plans to cut its non-union staffing levels by 15 per cent, including a 25 per cent reduction in the executive ranks, and double its spending on electric and autonomous vehicles within the next two years. GM propulsion plants in White Marsh, Md., and Warren, Mich., are also due to close as well. The facilities made some trucks, but those trucks are also made at in Mexico. They have an 11-month-old at home.

Workers said they were creating a blockade, stopping trucks carrying supplies from entering the plant. "It's hard, it's awful".

Lordstown, which has dropped from three shifts to one in recent years, exclusively produces the Chevrolet Cruze.
