WASHINGTON, March 6 General Motors Co
said Monday it will layoff 1,100 workers in May at its Lansing
Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan as it shifts
production of a vehicle to Tennessee.
The largest U.S. automaker last year added 800 jobs at its
Spring Hill, Tennessee plant to build a new version of the GMC
Acadia SUV. The Lansing plant will continue to build the Buick
Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse after it retools for a month. GM
has announced some other U.S. factory cuts in recent months even
as it said in January it would invest another $1 billion in U.S.
