General Motors to Announce Mass Layoffs to Employees This Morning

GM Will Start Laying Off More Than 4,000 Workers on Monday

General Motors will begin laying off 4,250 salaried workers on Monday as part of the restructuring plans the company announced late past year, two Detroit newspapers reported Friday.

The largest US automaker announced in November it would cut a total of about 15,000 jobs and end production at five North American plants.

GM is expected to complete its plans to cut 15 percent of its salaried workforce by the end of this month.

But on Friday a GM spokesman said the automaker had trimmed about 1,500 contract jobs, meaning about 4,000 more staff jobs will be cut, according to the Detroit Free Press.

It is Black Monday for workers at General Motors.

The company said last October that it would offer buyouts to 18,000 white-collar workers across its North American operations as part of cost-cutting efforts.

The restructuring also includes the planned shutdown of the company's Oshawa Assembly Plant at a loss of about 2,600 unionized jobs and four other plants in the U.S.

The employee said some department leaders have told workers to forego scheduling vacation time in the first two weeks of February, an insinuation that the involuntary cuts will be made at that time.

GM also said in November that it planned to close five vehicle plants, four in the US and one in Canada.

GM said that the employees who are laid off will be offered severance packages and job placement services.

Trump, who made a 2017 speech near GM's Lordstown Assembly plant in OH, said in November the company had "better" find a new product for that plant.

The GM plant in Lordstown, Ohio, is one of the four USA sites affected, CNN reported. Now, 4,000 more will be laid off.

"All of them are impacted", Rothenberg said.
