The Lansing State Journal updated the story on LGR to indicate that 200 General Motors LGR employees will be working in Flint starting January 14, 2019 to help meet demand for full-size trucks; the GMC Sierra and the Chevy Silverado are manufactured at the Flint Assembly plant.

 

November 9, 2018: We received an anonymous call on the input lines here this morning that the General Motors Grand River Assembly plant in Lansing is extending the end-of-year shut down that begins December 20th from two weeks to four weeks.

And when employees come back on January 14th, only one shift will reportedly be coming back to the job.

The reason cited by the caller, as told them by General Motors Management, was a decline in demand for the Chevy Camaro.

The Cadillac ATS and CTS models are currently being manufactured at GM's Lansing Grand River Assembly plant.

Our caller indicated that it sounds as if there will still be two shifts operating at General Motors Delta Township plant (LDT).

Earlier this year, the Lansing State Journal reported that GM plans to invest $175 million at LGR over the next three years.  Assembly of the Cadillac sedans is expected to be replaced with a couple of yet to be named models.
