Report: General Motors to Stop Production at Lordstown Plant

According to reports, General Motors is going to stop production at the Lordstown Plant.

WKBN-TV is reporting that production will stop in March. 

The G.M. Lordstown Plant has over 1,400 hourly employees and 200 salaried employees. 

Sales of the Lordstown produced Chevy Cruze have declined. 

The plant has already lost two of its three shifts and 3,000 jobs since the beginning of the year. 

G.M. is also expected to close one of their plants in Canada, cutting 2,800 jobs as part of the company's global restructuring. 

According to the Associated Press, GM is going to cut 14,700 across North America. 

The company's executive staff will also be cut by 25-percent.  

A GM official told the Los Angeles Times the move prepares the company for the next economic downturn, shifting trade agreements under the Trump administration, and potential tariffs on imported automobiles.
