And this isn't the only production pause that GM has had to implement.

In February, it was confirmed that production at the Fort Wayne Assembly truck plant would be shut down for two weeks starting March 27 in a move to manage inventory levels.

The factory constantly reviews and adjusts production schedules according to customers' needs, and all measures taken are in accordance with the provisions of the UAW-GM National Bargaining Agreement and the local agreement as confirmed by company officials.
