GM Laying Off Additional 1,100 Michigan Workers

General Motors has announced today it will layoff approximately 1,100 workers in Michigan. The layoffs will occur at the company’s Lansing Delta Township assembly plant where the company produces its lineup of large crossovers.

The company has been in the process of shifting production of one of its large crossovers, the GMC Acadia, to the company’s Spring Hill, Tennessee plant. GM added 800 jobs in Spring Hill to move production of the Acadia to that plant.

Lansing Delta is still building the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse, both of which are still on the outgoing Lambda platform. Lansing Delta will continue to produce both large crossovers after they are redesigned on GM’s new Chi platform.

Today’s announcement comes just weeks after GM announced 1,300 layoffs from the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plan in metro Detroit back in mid-December. GM also laid off 2,000 additional workers at its Lansing Grand River Assembly and Lordstown, Ohio Assembly plants. All previous layoffs were associated with the elimination of plant shifts due to shifting consumer demand away from cars to crossovers and trucks.

In January General Motors announced plans to invest $1 billion into its U.S. manufacturing operations throughout 2017 with plans to retain or create up to 7,000 jobs.

    I can't imagine GM will pull that Chinese production crap much with Trump in office.


    Trump is just a symbol of the political undercurrents in the US. Now is clearly not the time to import Chinese cars while cutting production in the US and Canada.

    Good for Spring Hill, at least.

    Always sad to see American workers lose their jobs...especially when General Motors builds the Envision in China when there is already factories in the US that produce vehicles on that exact platform. Just foolish to have that in this political climate.
