Source: 1,100 workers to lose jobs at Lordstown
General Motors is laying off 1,100 hourly and salaried workers from its Lordstown complex, a source told The Vindicator.
GM officials told workers about the cuts in a broadcast at the complex this morning.
The source said the complex’s third shift is not being eliminated as has been rumored for weeks, but the speed of the assembly line is being slowed. The complex has nearly 5,000 hourly and salaried workers after about 1,400 workers were brought on in August when the third shift was created.
