FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A brief strike by employees of a parts supplier has forced General Motors to cancel the majority of its second-shift production at its Fort Wayne Assembly Plant.
According to 24-Hour News 8 sister station, WANE, the shutdown will impact only second shift operations on Wednesday, General Motors said. The plant’s material, maintenance and final process employees and support departments will work as scheduled.
The temporary shutdown is a result of a strike by employees of parts supplier Nexter. The strike lasted less than 24 hours, but with a subsequent loss of supplies it created a gap in production, a General Motors spokesperson said.
Plant officials said all third shift employees should report to work at their normally scheduled shift time Wednesday night.
