Indiana safe from latest round of GM cuts

Indiana safe from latest round of GM cuts: "General Motors Corp.'s latest round of cost-cutting moves will miss Indiana.

The automaker said yesterday it will cut 2,000 jobs at plants in Michigan and Ohio, and it will halt production for several weeks at nine U.S. plants over the next six months due to slow sales.

GM spokesman Chris Lee told IBJ that none of those plants are Indiana.

Lee said the company will eliminate the second shift at its Delta Township plant near Lansing, Mich., on March 30, and the second shift at its Lordstown, Ohio, factory will end April 6.

About 1,200 workers will be laid off at the Michigan plant, while 800 jobs will be cut in Ohio."
