GM lays off 160 white-collar workers at Warren

General Motors Corp. began white-collar layoffs today, telling about 160 workers at the Warren Technical Center that their last day will be April 1.

The move is just the beginning of GM’s plans to cut 3,400 salaried jobs in the United States this year. Worldwide, GM plans to cut 47,000 workers by the end of the year.

The job cuts are part of GM’s sweeping restructuring efforts to make the company viable. Salaried workers that are let go will receive severance packages. Most of the workers told they would be let go are engineers and support staff, Wilkinson said.
