General Motors

General Motors stated Monday it is temporarily laying off another 415 employees in Mexico as a strike by 48,000 U.S. hourly workers enters its fourth week.

GM stated it had partially idled its Ramos Arizpe propulsion plant, with the V8 engine line and the CVT transmission line not in operation. The plant keeps building engines for the Ramos assembly plant, which continues to operate, but GM earlier laid off 6,000 employees in Mexico at a separate facility in Silao, Mexico.

On Sunday, a United Auto Workers (UAW) official stated the talks had taken a “turn for the worse.” Talks between the UAW and GM restarted Monday morning.
