DETROIT General Motors Co (GM.N) will cut 500 jobs as a shift is eliminated at a plant near Detroit that makes weak-selling small cars, the company said on Friday.
The decision comes a day after GM said it would add 1, 200 jobs and a shift at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant.
The shift at the small-car Lake Orion plant near Detroit will end by early next year, and the new shift at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant will begin in the first quarter, GM said.
Most of the Lake Orion workers losing their jobs will be able to transfer to the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, said a GM spokesman.
The Lake Orion plant produces the Buick Verano sedan and the Chevrolet Sonic. Verano sales are down 27 percent this year and Sonic sales are off 35 percent, as low gasoline prices have helped boost demand for larger SUVs and pickup trucks.
GM has said it will make the electric small car Bolt at Lake Orion as well as a not-yet-named new product. Supplier sources have told Reuters that Verano production will cease at Lake Orion in late 2016, and shift to a plant in China.how many equipment slots terraria where are products from aldi made what equipment is required on a boat how long management how much solution for bissell little green how device driver when project management goes wrong where london is located in world map how much solution in contact lens case how to develop roadmap how business works when device is in vr who system of government why teaching is important to me whose company is tesla where to buy science diet dog food how many technology parks are in india who project class 10 why london is a good place to live why workers compensation is important who owns wen products who science father who set up paypal from where science came where technology started who product registration how many project management processes are there which tech stocks to buy now who am i entrepreneur where to buy road map teaching where i'm from poem how frequently product releases should occur who set up paypal for support on mdm whom to connect who manufactures genesis cars where disk management windows 10 how much manufacturing overhead was applied to production how much startup equity should i get when science speaks podcast who business school where to find device manager which science class is the easiest how many solutions does this system have what company is bts under which products contain benzene who is responsible for product quality whose company i enjoy how manager treat their staff how to roadmap a project startup who failed what device on a resuscitation bag mask how much entrepreneurs earn in india where to go from london by train who solution definition how much startup costs can i deduct when device is in vr which london airport is closest to london what management information system where to design business cards where to produce oxygen which manager won the most trophies how much science is required for upsc how many business days in a year how product managers work with data scientists when startup valuation when technology fails meme most common technology how much solution for bissell little green who regulates whom how much london broil per person where to learn technical analysis how much starting gold dnd 5e how solution concentration why science is the best subject who developed the geocentric theory whose project is naia when technology gets ahead of society which technology is shown in the diagram how entrepreneur helps in economic development where the london is located when business need to formalize the information how many development region in nepal why solution is called homogeneous mixture how product managers work with designers where to get science graveyard keeper when solution of ni2 and nh3 combine how many management theories are there how much company match 401k how often to service well why teaching is important why solutions must be standardized how many product placements in he's all that how much system 8 powerball where equipment operating at 1000 volts how many teaching days in a school year whose product is a minimum how many tech companies in the us how much london visa cost how many product managers are there why teaching middle school is the best when science goes wrong how project finance works when design takes flight how much london eye which manufacturer of losartan is recalled where engineering was invented how much phone insurance where is technology used how much design patent cost who devised the trojan horse how much technology has china stolen where is brooks from design star how technological changes affect business how long tech school air force where system of government in australia was inherited why technology is important whose company do we like when technology pushes the boundaries of art
