GM suspending Cruze car production at Ohio plant

The northeast Ohio GM plant that makes the Chevrolet Cruze compact car is halting production because of what the automaker says is a supplier issue.

The General Motors Co. says the shutdown at the complex in Lordstown, outside Youngstown, begins with Monday night shifts and early Monday shifts are expected to be shortened. The complex, with production and stamping plants, employs about 4,500 people.

The Detroit-based automaker says it is working with the supplier in an effort to resume production soon.
