The beleaguered CAMI Automotive Inc. plant in Ingersoll, Ont., Canada, will drop to two shifts from three. The night shift will be eliminated in the next month due to slow sales for the Chevrolet Tracker and Suzuki Vitara compact SUVs. The 1,500 workers will be on rotating layoffs over the next year, awaiting a production boost with the addition of the new Chevy Equinox cross/utility vehicle in 2004. CAMI is a joint venture of General Motors Corp. and Suzuki Motor Corp.
