The plant operates by a seniority system, with more senior second-shift workers in some cases displacing less senior first-shift workers. For the 400 to 500 workers displaced, Friday was the last day.
Meanwhile, the final date for all remaining workers is approaching, a union leader said, although he would not reveal that date.
GM in June said the plant will close by 2010. Harry Bogan, a regional director for the International Union of Electronic Workers-Communication Workers of America — which represents the plant's hourly workers — said last week he expected a precise closing date from GM by month's end.
On Friday, Bogan said he has the date, but he could not announce it publicly. He said he hopes to be able to reveal the date by next week.
