Nearly 600 employees at the General Motors Lordstown Assembly Complex have opted to retire early or accept a buyout after the company announced the elimination of the second shift in April, according to The Vindicator.
Dave Green, president of the United Auto Workers Local 112, said the 592 workers who opted for either retirement or a buyout said it's part of the company's special attrition program, which is expected to mitigate layoffs.
