100 workers scheduled for 1-week layoff



Published: Thu, February 7, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



LORDSTOWN -- About 100 workers at General Motors' fabricating plant in Lordstown will be laid off next week.

The one-week layoff is the result of reduced production at a GM plant in Baltimore that makes vans, said Bob Chambers, president of United Auto Workers Local 1714.

The local plant, which has about 2,400 hourly workers, makes outer body panels and some interior parts for the vans.

Chambers said the layoffs aren't a surprise because auto plants around the country are cutting back production because of slower auto sales. The local plant, which is adjacent to GM's Lordstown Assembly Plant, last had layoffs in December.

Laid-off workers receive unemployment benefits and supplemental pay provided for in the labor contract which amounts to about 95 percent of their take-home pay.
