General Motors to lay off 100 employees at Warren Tech Center

GM realigning technology organizations; Warren Research and Development Center will see cuts


WARREN, Mich. – At General Motors' Research and Development Center at the Warren Technical Center campus there is pain and still more concern.

Local 4 has learned the automotive company plans to cut more white collar jobs. Employees were notified about the cuts this past Friday.

GM gave Local 4 the following statement on Monday:

"GM leadership recently notified employees working in its Global Research and Development organization of plans to realign the organization's business structure. These moves will enable the organization to better focus on commercializing customer-focused innovation in a more efficient and cost-effective manner."

Transition: GM's technology can't get too far ahead of what drivers want. Thus, the company is scaling back and moving around some of its programs.

Soon, 100 salaried and contract employees at the Warren R&D Center will get pink slips. They will receive severance packages.

Update and correction:

The Honeoye Falls, New York fuel cell lab will NOT close… That work will continue to carry on in Honeoye Falls, instead the unit will stay in New York and fold into the Powertrain division from R&D.
