General Motors announced that its plant in San Luis Potosi will shut down operations for two weeks during December. These measures are intended to perform maintenance tasks and are not related to the closure of 5 plants in North America announced by the company last week, said GM Communication and Public Relations Manager in Mexico, Kathia Muñoz Peña, via a statement.

“There will be two technical stoppages: from December 9 to December 12 for the assembly plant and from December 24 to January 1 for both the assembly and transmission plants, due to major maintenance issues scheduled since the beginning of the year,” she said.

The official added that the stoppages will give employees time to be with their families during the holiday season.

GM has a workforce of 19,000 employees in Mexico, including unionized and salaried personnel, distributed in the company's different facilities in the country. Of this number, more than 6,000 work in the San Luis Potosi complex.
