DETROIT -- General Motors Corp.’s Lansing (MI) Grand River plant may add a second shift as early as August – instead of early 2003 -- due to the sales success of the Cadillac CTS. Meanwhile, GM’s Orion, MI, facility reportedly may lay off half of its 3,700 workers due to slow sales. GM also is said to be considering cutting a shift at its Linden, NJ, assembly plant, which is likely to close in 2004-2005, sources say.
