GM to lay off 1,100 workers at Michigan plant

General Motors will lay off 1,100 workers at its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan as it shifts production of its GMC Acadia SUV, reports the Lansing State Journal. GM added 800 jobs at its Tennessee plant last year for the latest Acadia.

The Lansing plant will continue to build the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave, and workers were given a 60-day notice of the layoffs on Monday.

Note: Although GM announced in January that it would invest $1 billion in its U.S. factories, the company has introduced several cuts to its American factories in recent months.
