Austintown trucking company to commence layoffs this summer


Comprehensive Logistics Inc., an Austintown-based company that ships automotive parts for the General Motors Corporation, has just announced the date for the mass layoffs coming this summer.

The company will be cutting a significant portion of its workforce on June 15, 2018. In compliance with the WARN Act, a 60+ day notice was sent to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Comprehensive Logistics has not indicated the amount of workers that will be affected.

On April 13, 2018, the GM Complex in Lordstown announced that it would eliminate its second production shift, wiping out approximately 1,500 jobs.

According to the Tribune, Chronicle, Comprehensive Logistics is the third area company to announce layoffs since GM’s decision. Source Providers, a subsidiary of Comprehensive Logistics, plans to eliminate nearly 125 jobs when GM layoffs begin in June.

Lordstown Seating Systems, which provides seats for the Lordstown-built Chevrolet Cruze, plans to lay off about 83 hourly employees, and possibly a few salaried employees, within June 15 – 29, 2018.

Layoffs at the Lordstown complex were a byproduct of a consumer shift toward SUVs and trucks.
