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

GM Renaissance Center in Detroit

Of the 18,000 staff members who were offered a voluntary buyout package, reportedly only 2,300 employees accepted the offer.

General Motors says it has largely completed salaried job cuts in Canada as part of a wider restructuring announced last November.

Many of GM's hourly workers in the United States and Canada have held protests and prayer vigils in a campaign to persuade the automaker to reverse its November 26 GM announcement to indefinitely idle five plants in North America. The cuts include eliminating about 8,000 salaried workers, or about 15 per cent.

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.

The workers will be called to company conference rooms this week to be informed that they are being cut. The decision also involves reducing the number of executives by 25 percent in a bid to streamline the decision-making process.

GM said in November it would end USA and Canadian production of the Chevrolet Cruze, Volt, Impala, the Buick LaCrosse and the Cadillac XTS and CT6 sedans.

Last month, Comprehensive Logistics said it would cease operations at its facility in Lordstown that provides logistics and warehousing, impacting about 180 jobs.
