General Motors do Brasil Ltda. Key Developments

Strike Ends at General Motors Plant in Brazil

Workers at General Motors Co's Brazilian car factory ended a six-day strike on February 26, 2015 after the company agreed to drop plans to lay off 800 employees. In a compromise deal, GM agreed to furlough 650 workers for five months as of March 9, with a guarantee they will get their jobs back. Stoppage days will not be deducted from wages and the company vowed not to retaliate against workers who walked off the job in the longest strike GM has faced in Brazil in the last 12 years. Workers brought production to a standstill last week to protest GM's proposal to furlough nearly 800 workers for two months before laying them off in April. The strike in Sao Jose dos Campos, 90 kilometres outside Sao Paulo, was the most recent in a wave of labour disruptions this year in Brazil's slumping auto industry, which trimmed 7% of workers last year as output plunged. GM has cut its payrolls at the factory from about 7,500 workers in 2012 to about 5,200 currently.

General Motors do Brasil to Invest USD 2.9 Billion in Brazil from 2014 to 2018

General Motors do Brasil is investing USD 2.9 billion in Brazil from 2014 to 2018. The funds will be utilised for the new products, technologies and employee training and for localising components with Brazilian suppliers. This investment will allow the Chevrolet brand continue to renew its line-up with a focus on technology and quality. Another major purpose of this contribution is to raise the percentage of nationalisation of the components of the cars made in Brazil, in an action that also involves suppliers installed in the country.

General Motors Confirms to Lay Off 1,000 Employees in Brazil

The Brazilian affiliate of General Motors has announced layoff of nearly 1,000 employees from a unit located in Sao Jose dos Campos in Sao Paulo state. This move will affect 1,053 workers, which includes employees who had already joined the Voluntary Resignation Program, or PDV, last year. As per the terms agreed upon with the union, General Motors granted employees a paid leave of absence from August 2013 until December 31.
