They are also temporarily closing two Michigan plants to slow production.

GM is making too many cars and needs to slow down production. WNEM TV-5 is reporting that GM will close five factories next month to reduce inventory, two of those are in Michigan. One in the Detroit area, and one in Lansing. Those factories could be closed for a period of one to three weeks.

There are also reports stating GM is expected to send out almost 1,300 layoff notices to Michigan workers. The layoffs are a result of GM eliminating third shift at the Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Layoffs wont begin until early March, and will affect 600 regular workers and 670 temporary workers.
