General Motors starting white-collar layoffs this week

General Motors says it has largely completed salaried job cuts in Canada as part of a wider restructuring announced last November. The job reductions, part of GM's previously announced plan to reduce its headcount by 15 percent, are coming after more than 2,000 employees accepted voluntary buyouts. "At same time, unions need bigger seat at table and we need a plan to address painful job loss".

As first reported this weekend by The Detroit News, sources within the company state the job cuts - reportedly expected to climb to 6,000 by the spring - are part of efforts to save the company $2.5 Billion this year.
