GM CHAIR UPDATE – Temporary Layoff Due to Semiconductor Shortage

July 15th, 2021

I have just been informed by the Company the semiconductor production adjustments at GM North American Assembly Plants, including our customer plants, Lansing Delta Township Assembly and CAMI Assembly.

The resulting impact in St. Catharines will be as follows:

  • The GF6 downtime will be extended through the week of August 16, 2021
  • Our HFV6 operation will experience downtime the weeks of July 19 & July 26, 2021
  • Our third shift in the Gen V operation will experience downtime the week of July 19, 2021

Impacted members will be notified by the Company in accordance with our Local Seniority Agreement.

The Union will continue to work with the Company to mitigate the impact of the semiconductor shortage.
