General Motors Corporation (GM) (NYSE: GM), a United States-based automaker, is transferring 85 workers from its closed Grand Rapids, Michigan plant to a metal stamping plant in Marion, Indiana.

According to the Detroit News, the company will be shifting the workers to the new plant over the next three weeks. Presently, the Marion plant employs 1,000 workers.

The automaker is likely to transfer more employees as the company is making an effort to reduce its overall United States capacity. It plans to close 14 North American plants, which will lead to a loss of thousand jobs.
