GM is taking strides to minimize the impact on its workers by creating jobs at other nearby plants. This will be difficult when the same plant is taking a three week break from assembly in January like four other locations.
Others affected include the Ohio Lordstown plant (Chevy Cruze) and Kentucky’s Bowling Green (Corvette). These are both taking a single week stoppage while the Fairfax plant in Kansas City (Chevy Malibu) is taking three. Lasing Grand River is taking a two week break from assembling the Camaro and the Cadillac CTS and ATS.
