GM to Idle Plants
Troubled automaker General Motors, struggling to save cash, said today that it will cut production by idling five manufacturing plants for brief periods of time over the next two months.
During the week of Dec. 8, GM will shut down a plant in:
-- Wentzville, Mo.
For the week of Jan. 5:
-- Lordstown, Ohio
-- Orion, Mich.
-- Fairfax, Kan.
For the week of Jan. 12:
-- Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
The plants make everything from cars to SUVs and trucks.
GM said it plans no permanent workforce reduction at the idled plants, which employ about 16,000 workers.
