GM delays second shift restart in three North American truck plants

General Motors is delaying the resumption of second shifts at a handful of its truck assembly plants in Michigan, Indiana, and Mexico due to a parts shortage from the U.S.’s southern neighbor.

General Motors had hoped to start second shifts in its Ft Wayne, Indiana, Flint and Silao, Mexico plants, but that is no longer possible. It is now targeting a resumption of a second shift as early as later next week.

Reuters reports that Mexico auto parts production only started to slowly resume this week, hence the delay at the plants responsible for building its full-size trucks.
