TOLEDO, Ohio – General Motors’ Toledo transmission plant will be shut down for a week later this month as the auto industry experiences a semiconductor problem.
According to an internal memo to WTOL, Toledo Transmission will be down in the week of May 17th. Staff are expected to return on May 24th.
The memo states that the company is “doing everything in its power to manage this situation and to minimize the impact on our team members and our customers.”
This is the second time this month that workers have been temporarily laid off due to the shortage of chips.
