General Motors starting white-collar layoffs this week

General Motors starting white-collar layoffs this week

General Motors will begin handing out the first of 4,250 pink slips to its salaried workers on Monday.

As of Sunday afternoon, it was unclear which jobs or departments would be affected by the expected layoffs, or if salaried workers in the remaining Ontario GM plants - CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll and the St. Catharines Propulsion Plant - would be impacted. Originally reported by The Detroit News, the report comes nine weeks after GM made a decision to halt production at five North American plants and began negotiations with the United Automobile Workers union.

"The actions we are taking today continue our transformation to be highly agile, resilient and profitable while giving us the flexibility to invest in the future", Barra said.

We've been expecting layoffs at General Motors since November, 2018.

GM offered buyouts for 18,000 workers last October, only four months after the company warned that steel tariffs imposed by President Trump would lead to fewer jobs in North America.

A friend of St John's came by his home in San Fernando Valley, California , to check on him on Sunday and discovered his body. No parent should ever have to bury their child, and for those who do, it is a nightmare that haunts you forever.

"These actions are necessary to secure the future of the company, including preserving thousands of jobs in the USA and globally", GM said in a statement Monday.

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

At the same time, it announced plans to close four USA plantsas well as a fifth in Canada.

The cuts come after GM's November announcement of dramatic restructuring.

But GM Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra wrote last week: "We are more convinced than ever that our strategy is sound and in the long term". Magna International Inc is also laying off about 120 people at its Lordstown Seating Systems plant that makes seats for GM vehicles.
