GM has meeting today with Lordstown Complex employees
LORDSTOWN — A meeting with all 3,000 General Motors Lordstown Assembly Complex employees will take place today at 3 p.m.
What will be discussed at the meeting is unknown at this point.
The news will come after the United Auto Workers Local 1112 President Glenn Johnson was ousted by former UAW 1714 President Dave Green earlier this week.
The plant, which produces the Chevrolet Cruze, a compact car, has seen slumping sales of the car. March marked the 11th consecutive month of sales declines for the Cruze. Last year, the plant lost its third shift and saw more than 10 weeks of down time because of the trend away from small cars.
Some good news for the plant came last week when GM announced the 2019 Cruze would be released later this year with an upgraded face and new features.
