DETROIT/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – General Motors Co said on Thursday it plans to scale back production at an assembly plant in Detroit starting later this month as it tries to deal with declining U.S. sedan sales
GM said in a statement that effective Oct. 20 its Detroit-Hamtramck plant “will operate under a reduced production schedule.”
“This action will help maintain more stable production,” the No. 1 U.S. carmaker said.
The statement followed reports that GM plans to shut the plant for about six weeks from mid-November and
