General Motors will begin the process of terminating over 4,000 salaried workers on Monday, February 4, according to a recent report.
As part of a broader restructuring effort, the automaker will start reductions in its salaried workforce on Monday. "GM's CEO Mary Barra is clearly not timid about making bold decisions to implement radical change, whether it be forging new technologies or the gut-wrenching shuttering of factories". In his rebuke of GM, Trump focused on the closures in OH, a state he won in the 2016 election.
He said the company would face punishment for the closures, which included a plant in Lordstown, Ohio, that Trump personally promised to revive during the 2016 campaign. Unhappy with the announcement, President Donald Trumpsaid at the timenew auto tariffs were being "studied".
"You know, the United States saved General Motors, and for her (Barra) to take that company out of OH is not good", Trump said past year.
The exact timing of these layoffs remains unclear, however.
During his State of the Union address next week, President Trump is expected to tout boosts in American manufacturing as one of his successes in the White House, CNN reported. A senior administration official said Friday the speech's theme would be "Choosing greatness". More than 6,200 jobs are at stake. But trade tensions and global economic anxiety have led some companies to rethink their business plans and sparked concerns about the risk of a slowdown.
Automotive industry outlets, including Automotive News, has referred to Monday's layoff plan as "Black Monday", which are expected to begin at 7:30 a.m. and continue throughout the day.
Beyond the salaried workers who face job cuts, another 6,000 hourly workers at the five plants could still find their positions in jeopardy because of the restructuring. Another 1,500 contracted employees are said to have not been offered an extension or renewal on their contracts.
That leaves the remainder of the 8,000 planned job cuts to be accomplished with the involuntary layoffs.
