DETROIT - General Motors said Friday that it plans to cut the second shift at its Pontiac, Mich., truck plant next May. The number of layoffs expected among the 2,700 workers there is unclear, GM spokesman Tom Wickham said.
The factory assembles GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado full-sized pickups. It produces 45 vehicles per hour per shift. Wickham declined to discuss production levels after the shift is cut.
The announcement came three days after GM said it would cut production at its nearby Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
