General Motors is laying off almost 1,000 employees in Michigan at its Lansing Delta Township plant as it shifts production of a vehicle to Tennessee. This is the fourth layoff announced by the company since November.
The largest US automaker added 800 jobs last year at its Spring Hill, Tennessee plant to build a new version of the GMC Acadia SUV. General Motors is removing the third shift at its Lansing Delta Township plant that makes three SUVs built on the same platform. These includes Chevrolet Traverse, the Buick Enclave and the GMC Acadia. There are currently 3,144 workers at the Lansing plant and exactly 1,100 workers will be laid off.
General Motors has announced other US factory job cuts even after it said on January that it would invest another $1 billion in US factories. The workers keeping their jobs now are still safe from any employment actions as General Motors just invested $583 million in the plant to make the new generation of Traverses and Enclaves. US President Donald Trump has urged General Motors and other automakers to build more cars in the country.
This is part of Trump's promise to boost US manufacturing jobs and discourage the automotive industry from investing in Mexico. General Motors, on the other hand, has said the $1 billion investment would allow it to create or retain jobs. But the company did not specify what jobs will be impacted. It can be remembered in November that General Motors said it is eliminating the third shift at the Lansing and Lordstown Ohio plant.
The layoffs were the first US job cuts implemented by General Motors since 2010, a report has learned. Then in December, the company said it plans to eliminate the third shift at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant. The four rounds of layoffs will result in 4,400 job losses. The company still has more US employees as it has employed 105,000 as of late last year.
