General Motors To Lay Off Workers At Toledo Transmission Plant

General Motors has announced that it will be cutting jobs at the GM Toledo Transmission plant

Per a recent report from The Detroit News, General Motors will lay off 16 permanent workers and 106 temporary workers from the Toledo facility. The layoffs will go into effect September 27th.

The GM Toledo Transmission plant supplies transmissions to 10 General Motors facilities throughout North America. Per the recent report from The Detroit News, the new layoffs arrive as General Motors aligns production with demand in regard to its six-speed rear-wheel drive transmission fo the automaker’s full-size truck models.

As a reminder, General Motors no longer offers the six-speed automatic transmission (MYC) for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. In addition, both full-size pickups no longer offer the naturally aspirated 4.3L V8 LV3 gasoline engine and naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L82 gasoline engine. The naturally aspirated 4.3L V8 LV3 is rated at 285 horsepower at 5,300 rpm and 305 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm, while the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L82 is rated at 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm.

Meanwhile, a six-speed transmission is still available with the Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD in conjunction with the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, which is rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. A six-speed automatic transmission is also offered with the Chevy Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.

In other General Motors production work news, GM is requiring that its U.S. salaried workforce disclose their vaccination status in order to maintain appropriate safety protocols. Additionally, General Motors and the United Auto Workers labor union have agreed to reinstate mandatory mask requirements inside GM’s U.S. facilities. The new guidelines arrive following updated guidance from the CDC as a new surge in COVID-19 cases spreads across the country.

"Electric vehicles don't have transmissions"

Somebody's going to have to help me out with this that trolling or is this person serious?

With the production freeze on the Bolt GM doesn't make any electric vehicles.

Do they plan on selling less
Are the people laid off only capable of making
Do they make any trucks without transmissions...we're still waiting for them

Leadership decided to make cars that wouldn't make money and then fired people instead of retraining. Despite all of the things that General Motors stole from their Japanese competitors they refuse to accept the most important part of their processes...respect for employees.

I kinda feel sorry for the temp workers aside from the fact that now they can get a job somewhere that gives them what they deserve. Though, it does make me wonder...

Why can't General Motors align itself without firing hundreds of people?

Since it was customer demand that necessitated realignment, I guess it was the customer's fault.
