INDIANAPOLIS - An auto parts shortage prompted the cancellation of several shifts at the General Motors assembly plant in Fort Wayne, but second-shift employees were scheduled to return to work Wednesday.
A spokesperson says a breakdown at a supplier caused the problem that has affected shifts since Monday night.
The factory, with about 4,000 workers, assembles Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks.
Salaried employees continued on the job through the work interruption, and some hourly employees were called in for work.
Assembly workers are being told to report to work on Saturday to make up for the production losses.
