Production at GM Lordstown plant to resume next week

Earthquakes in Japan caused supply interruptions, halting production at four plants in North America

The big banner on the side of the General Motors Lordstown plant -- the one that can been seen from the Ohio Turnpike -- is being replaced.

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – General Motors announced Wednesday afternoon that production at the Lordstown plant will resume on Monday after being suspended for two weeks.

Operations at four North American plants were halted last month due to supply interruptions caused by earthquakes in Japan.

UAW workers received three quarters of their wages while on layoff.
