More than a thousand General Motors hourly workers in Delta township will be laid off in May as the automaker ends third shift operations there.

The move--which many expected—was announced on Monday.

It comes after the automaker’s decision to shift production of the next generation GMC Acadia to Spring Hill, Tennessee.

The Delta plant has produced the first generation Acadia since 2006.

It will lower the number of hourly employees at the facility to about 2,100.

General Motors has been around for 106 years, and they’ve built a lot of vehicles. In fact, that number has recently surpassed 500-million. Half a billion Chevys, Cadillacs, and, of course, Lansing-built Oldsmobiles, and others. It's an amazing number. That’s far more than any other car company.
