  1. THE WALL STREET JOURNAL | 22 MAY 2020 GM’s Plans to Increase Truck Production Delayed by Parts Shortage A shortage of parts from Mexico is hampering General Motors’s plans to quickly ramp up production of high-profit pickup trucks, according to a union official and other people familiar with the matter, underscoring the auto industry’s halting restart after a two-month shutdown. GM has delayed plans to roughly double output at its two main U.S. pickup-truck factories by adding additional shifts of workers next week, these people said. The auto maker doesn’t yet have the flow of parts it needs to accelerate production as planned, they said. The auto maker postponed plans to call back roughly 1,300 workers to its Fort Wayne, Ind., truck factory starting Tuesday for a second eight-hour work shift, said Rich LeTourneau, an official at United Auto Workers Local 2209, which represents workers at the factory. The return date tentatively has been pushed back to June 1, he said. GM also delayed adding a second work shift at its Flint, Mich., pickup factory, which makes GM’s largest, priciest pickup trucks, some of the people said. More than 1,000 additional employees had been scheduled to come back Tuesday, but those plans have been delayed and workers haven’t been given a new callback date, they said. “We continue to plan to ramp up production in a gradual cadence,” a GM spokesman said, declining to discuss specifics about the schedule.
  2. I had a TPW of 4/20/20 for a Silverado 2500 LTZ, Event Code #3000. It then changed to 6/15/20, and now 6/29/20.
