GM to Idle Factories, Cut Thousands of North American Jobs


General Motors Co. announced plans Monday to cut up to 14,800 jobs and end production at several North American plants, marking the auto maker’s first significant downsizing since its bankruptcy last decade as the company tries to adjust to lower consumer demand for passenger cars.

The moves—affecting plants in Michigan, Ohio and Canada—would reduce GM’s costs by $4.5 billion by the end of 2020 but face protests from autoworker unions—and pushback from Washington.
