GM expected to start cutting 4,000 jobs

General Motors will begin laying off 4,250 salaried workers on Monday as part of the restructuring plans the company announced late past year, two Detroit newspapers reported Friday. In addition, GM will also begin to slash its global executive workforce by 25 percent but has not announced a timeframe in which it will begin white collar layoffs.

At the time, GM said it wanted to cut about 8,000 salaried workers from its payroll.

As federal workers across the country struggle to regain traction after the government shutdown, General Motors workers are bracing for layoffs set to start next week.

The company says 2,200 white-collar employees took buyouts, while another 1,500 contract workers were let go.

Titanfall battle royale game Apex Legends ‘to be released on Monday’
"So, if you like Respawn , our games or even me, you should tune in tomorrow [Monday, February 4]", a tweet from Zampella reads . Apex Legends is claimed to be a free-to-play battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe but, surprisingly, without Titans.

"We are not confirming timing". But 2,700 USA workers will be offered jobs at other factories. "We are taking action now while the overall economy and job market are strong, increasing the ability of impacted employees to continue to advance in their careers, should they choose to do so", GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said, adding the bulk of the cuts should be completed in the next two weeks. He says GM bought out thousands of white-collar employees close to retirement.

The cuts come after GM's November announcement of dramatic restructuring.

Last month, Comprehensive Logistics said it would cease operations at its facility in Lordstown that provides logistics and warehousing, impacting about 180 jobs.

Many of GM's hourly workers in the United States and Canada have held protests and prayer vigils in a campaign to persuade the automaker to reverse its November 26 GM announcement to indefinitely idle five plants in North America. "We don't know how many will be laid off vs relocated".
