Engine Layoffs
(2008-06-06)
(wgvu) - A Dayton, Ohio-area plant that makes diesel
engines for heavy-duty trucks and vans plans to lay off 290 hourly
workers indefinitely because of production cuts at General Motors
Corp. assembly plants in Michigan.
Courtney Strickler, spokeswoman for the DMAX plant in Moraine,
said Thursday the layoffs will go into effect July 14.
The plant is co-owned by General Motors and Isuzu Motors and
employs 1,160 workers. Strickler says some salaried workers will be
laid off too.
Strickler says the layoffs stem from shift reductions at GM
plants in Pontiac and Flint.
The layoffs will not affect DMAX's plans to make $69 million in
changes to the plant so it can produce a new engine that meets
stricter federal emissions requirements in 2010.
