General Motors Corp. will scale back production in Brazil by giving workers a 10-day holiday due to sluggish sales in the Latin American region. Some 2,500 employees out of a total of 8,500 workers at GM’s plant in Sao Jose dos Campos in the city of Sao Paulo will take mandatory vacations June 3-12. About 18,000 workers are employed at the auto maker’s three Brazilian plants. Production of S-10 pickups and Blazer SUVs will be halted, while Corsa and Zafira output will be halved, GM says.
