SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) -- The second shift at the General Motors Corp. truck assembly plant in Shreveport, La., has ended, eliminating the jobs of 798 employees and leaving the payroll at less than 800.
The plant recently employed more than 2,000 people, but has been hit by turmoil in the auto industry.
The plant currently produces the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks and the Hummer H3 and H3T.
This week GM said it would try to sell the Hummer brand.
GM spokesman Tony Sapienza says the prospects for getting a new product built at the plant are uncertain.
