GM Bids Farewell To a Beloved Model Following 57 Years.

(CTN News) – According to documents filed with the state of Michigan, General Motors (GM) will be laying off more than 1,300 workers at two of its Michigan plants early next year.

The larger layoff of 945 workers at GM’s Orion Assembly plant, where Chevrolet Bolts are produced, is scheduled to begin on January 1st. However, the final date of production at the plant is set for the week of December 18th.

GM had previously announced in October that it intends to convert the Orion plant to electric vehicle production by 2025.

Initially, the company had planned to bring the electrified version of the plant online in 2024, but the date was pushed back to safeguard profit margins.

During the announcement in October, GM stated that employees at the Orion plant would be provided with “other opportunities in Michigan.”

In addition to the layoffs at the Orion plant, GM will also be laying off 369 workers at its Lansing Grand River Assembly/Stamping plant due to the decision to discontinue the production of the Chevrolet Camaro, which takes place at the Lansing plant.

The commencement of layoffs at the plant is scheduled for January 2nd, as stated by the company. In their official statement, they assured that they expect to provide job opportunities for all affected team members per the UAW-GM National Agreement.

According to Brad Franz, the director of Chevrolet car and crossover marketing, the choice to discontinue the production of the Camaro was made after a thorough assessment of the company’s product lineup about our electric vehicle (EV) future and sales demand.
