On September 22, 2017, The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development received a WARN notification from General Motors LLC. The notification was sent to notify the Department that the company would soon be laying off workers at the company’s Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The facility is located on 100 Saturn Parkway.
The layoffs are expected to begin on November 27, 2017 and they will be permanent. In total, 680 workers will be impacted by the upcoming layoffs. The company claims it will be reducing production as demand in the United States continues to shrink. At this point in time, the Spring Hill plant manufactures Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia midsize SUVs.
The layoffs will primarily impact third shift workers. The plant employs roughly 1,000 individuals on the overnight shift, yet only 680 of those workers will lose their jobs. Earlier this month, Duracell announced 91 layoffs in Bradley County. GM’s WARN letter can be found here.
