Special Attrition Program Helps GM Lower Employment Costs, Close Competitive Gap

DETROIT, Mich.

– In support of its goals to reinvent the company as a leaner, more cost-competitive company, General Motors Company today announced that more than 6,000 U.S. hourly workers participated in the company’s Special Attrition Program. This represents the total number of employees most of whom departed the company August 1, 2009.

"We are pleased with the number of eligible employees who participated in the attrition program," said Diana Tremblay, GM North America vice president of Labor Relations. "One of the very tough, but necessary actions to position the company for long-term viability and success is to reduce our total U.S. workforce, both hourly and salaried employees."

Of the 6,000 employees who opted to take the separation, approximately 40 percent of participants were skilled trade employees, while 35 percent of participants were buy-outs.

"Given the fact that this is the second special attrition program we offered this year, the program’s success would indicate that employees had more clarity about the future of their facility," Tremblay said. "Results of this special attrition program will help GM lower its employment cost and close the competitive gap."

With the completion of the latest program, approximately 66,000 U.S. hourly workers have left GM under a Special Attrition Program since 2006.
