GM to cut nearly 700 jobs in Michigan amid plant closures

General Motors Co. will lay off nearly 700 employees at two of its manufacturing plants in Michigan under the company's restructuring plan.

GM said it will cut 620 hourly employees at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant and 50 hourly and salaried employees at its Brownstown battery plant.

In filings with GM's home state of Michigan, the Detroit-based company said the layoffs are set to begin Feb. 18, 2019.

Of the employees being cut at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, about 592 of them are production employees, while 28 are skilled trade employees.

The facility produces the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac CT6, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Volt.

At the Brownstown battery plant, 37 of the 50 employees laid off were plant-production workers represented by unions.

The Brownstown battery plant assembles lithium-ion batteries for the company's Chevrolet Volt, Malibu Hybrid, Silverado eAssist, GMC Sierra eAssist, Buick LaCrosse Hybrid, and Cadillac CT6 Plug-In vehicles. As of Sept. 25, the plant, operated by GM's wholly owned subsidiary GM Subsystems Manufacturing LLC, had 77 hourly employees and 39 salaried employees.

GM reiterated that affected salaried employees may transfer to other GM locations.

The company announced on Nov. 26 its plans to cut car production and reduce salaried staff by 15% in North America. The plan included closure of three car assembly plants in Canada, Ohio and Detroit in 2019. It comes as GM plans to focus its resources on electric and autonomous vehicles.

The plan has been met with backlash from lawmakers and U.S. President Donald Trump, who earlier told Fox News in an interview that GM would not be treated well going forward.
