Stellantis NV said on Tuesday it will start an indefinite layoff from the next week at its Sterling Heights stamping plant in Michigan.
The automaker did not mention the number of workers who would be affected by the layoffs but informed Reuters, that the decision was made in order to run the plant in a more sustainable manner.
A letter posted on the Facebook page of United Auto Workers Local 1264, a union that represents workers of Stellantis-owned Chrysler Sterling stamping plant, said the indefinite layoff will be from the bottom up, starting as soon as June 20.
Stellantis’ Sterling Stamping is globally the largest stamping plant. It employs 2,184 employees, which includes some 2,000 hourly workers.
