GM in Brazil / To layoff over 1,000

The Brazilian affiliate of U.S. automaker General Motors has confirmed the layoff of more than 1,000 employees from one of the multinational’s factories in Sao Jose dos Campos in Sao Paulo state, official sources said.

The decision will affect 1,053 workers, a number that includes employees who had already joined the Voluntary Resignation Program, or PDV, last year, the director of international affairs at General Motors, Luiz Moan, told reporters, without giving the exact number of workers who signed onto the PDV.

Employees who did not join the program were informed of their coming layoff during the last week of December, according to local media.

“There’s not the slightest chance of reversing the situation,” the director of international affairs said after meeting with Finance Minister Guido Mantega.

The plant, which manufactured the Classic model, ended production in August last year, Moan said.
