Report: GM to Lay Off Over 800 Workers
Dec. 5, 2019—General Motors will lay off 814 hourly and salaried workers at its assembly plant on the border of Detroit and Hamtramck, Mich., per a report by USA Today.
The production of the Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac CT6 will come to a close in 2020.
The plant had been originally slated to close altogether, but GM decided to keep it open to make electric vehicles in an agreement negotiated as part of a new contract with the United Auto Workers union.
The automaker provided notice of the layoffs Tuesday in a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act filing with the state.
