Lansing, Mich. (WLNS) —Today thousands of General Motors employees learned when they’ll head back to work.
The manufacturing industry is facing a nationwide shortage of semi-conductors. A lack of supply has forced several auto plants to shutdown production including the General Motors Delta plant.
Today the company says 2,500 employees who work at the Delta plant will be back to work on Monday, April 19th.
In a statement GM says they’ve made strides working with their supply base and have been able to mitigate some of the impacts of the shortage. And it’s not just Michigan workers that will return to the plants.
“GM’s supply chain organization has made strides working with our supply base to mitigate the near-term impacts of the semiconductor situation, including at Lansing Delta Township. With that, LDT will be resuming normal production next Monday, April 19 after being down for one week. In addition, GM’s Spring Hill Assembly Plant in Tennessee will also resume production on Monday, April 19 (the plant was expected to be down for two weeks), and Chevrolet Blazer production at Ramos Assembly in Mexico will not be canceled next week as previously announced.”
