GM had just 26 openings leading up to layoffs; employee sentiment plummeting

GM to lay off about 4000 salaried workers

GM to lay off about 4000 salaried workers

GM tech centers in Texas, Georgia, Arizona and MI are expected to be hit hardest this time around, as the overall plan will ultimately cut a total of about 15,000 jobs and end production at five North American plants.

GM officials have said they expect to add 2,700 jobs at various United States factories across and that USA union staff would be offered transfers.

At the time of the announced restructuring, GM had about 2,000 salaried employees in Canada as part of about 50,000 salaried workers in North America.

About 2,300 salaried workers opted for voluntary buyouts, while another 1,500 contract staff were let go, said the source, who described the estimate of 4,000 laid off salaried staff as reasonable. Yet its plans to cut thousands of jobs and close five plants sparked outrage late previous year from President Trump and congressional Republicans and Democrats. It announced plans for an $11 billion restructuring last October and is expected to axe as many as 25,000 jobs, though a majority of those cuts are seen targeting Europe and other financially struggling markets. Some other small salaried layoffs previously took place.

The automaker announced cuts in November, including the closure of its Oshawa, Ont., plant, in a move expected to save the GM billions of dollars and help it prepare for an expected slowdown of the US automotive market during the next several years.

Japan 1-3 Qatar
The UAE on Thursday formally questioned the eligibility of 22-year-old Almoez Ali and Iraqi-born defender Bassam al-Rawi, 21. Japan were rattled and Qatar almost found a third before half-time, with only the woodwork denying captain Hasan Al Haydos.

The automaker is cutting blue-collar and white-collar staff, though numerous hourly employees will remain on the job until their factories complete the build-out of targeted models like the Chevrolet Cruze built in Lordstown, Ohio, as well as the Cadillac XTS rolling off an assembly line in Detroit.

Trump, who made a 2017 speech near GM's Lordstown Assembly plant in OH, said in November the company had "better" find a new product for that plant.

GM said some 2,250 workers accepted severance agreements by November 19.

"All of them are impacted", Rothenberg said.
