General Motors (GM.N) said on Wednesday that Venezuelan authorities had illegally seized its plant in the industrial hub of Valencia and vowed to "take all legal actions" to defend its rights.

The seizure comes amid a deepening economic crisis in leftist-led Venezuela that has already roiled many U.S. companies.

"Yesterday, GMV's (General Motors Venezolana) plant was unexpectedly taken by the public authorities, preventing normal operations. In addition, other assets of the company, such as vehicles, have been illegally taken from its facilities," the company said in a statement.

>thinking GeneralShitters is better than Ford

I agree that basically after the 90's Ford trucks went to ass. I fucking hate how gargantuan and unnecessarily expensive trucks have become, not to mention all the normalfag shit that has plauged all cars in recent years. Like more safety features that turns the trucks into mini-school busses, computerized hackable garbage everywhere, and cheap plastic parts.

I'll never drive anything post-2000.

>pic related obviously not Ford but I created it to demonstrate how a once great offroader gets turned into a normalfag mall-crawler.

GM will simply stop sending their materials to that shithole, they might have stored raw materials on-site that could last a few months of slow pace production and then there will be no more money to make.

This is a act of a desperate government, while millions are protesting across the country.

GM will sue the government through third party lawyers and not continue operating the plant itself. Ultimately, the hundreds if not thousands of workers at the plant lose their jobs.

There was a strike or something there too. My guess is the government took over to buy goodwill with the strikers. Maduro would be better off if he started using an ouija board to make decisions, at least he'd be right half the time instead of never.

GM will have to wait a few years for the Maduro government to fall, and will get the plant back. Until then, not much they can do. Not like they're making many sales now I'd guess.


Venezuela has (well, had years ago) a good GDP for the region. Their gas is dirt cheap, so they probably used to purchase lots of cars when the plant was built. GM had no way to know they'd be retarded year after year later on.

These were factories for cars produced for the domestic Venezuelan market, not for export to the US you colossal morons

It wouldn't be feasible to export US built cars to third world markets since they're too expensive and would be unable to compete with Chinese/Japanese and other domestically built cars, also third world cars are typically "knock down kits" or older models that have less features than contemporary first world models

For example the B13 Nissan Sentra was sold in Mexico until only a few months ago, which for reference started selling in the US and Japan during 1990-1991



The Jeep/AMC 4.0 Straight Six is a reliable engine and the Cherokees are nice but Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep will never be as good as GM again due to the glory of the GM LS V8 engines, although they can certainly be improved by replacing the factory Jeep engine with a LS

Ford and Chrysler accepted government loans as well during the same time and Ford is actually the only one who still owes money


Most other car companies have Jewish practices as well, especially BMW and Mercedes, Mercedes used biodegradable wiring in the 90s even after it was already known to be problematic and BMW has started removing the dipsticks to check oil on cars which means you have to rely on electronic guages and have to take it to a dealership for a oil change every time

Wheres the misinterpretation? Them receiving a loan which very well did keep the company afloat and taking longer to repay than GM and Chrysler did is unrelated to the fact that one of the reasons for the loan was claimed to be incentive for more low emissions vehicles, which also was part of the stipulations on the loans to GM and Chrysler.

Not to mention that Ford has been particularly discouraging of the enthusiast market compared to GM and Chrysler, Ford is even going as far as killing off V8s and has already done so with the Ford GT while the Mustang and F-150 will be next and at one point was set to be discontinued after the end of 2017 before they backpedaled due to people complaining

Another genius move that will surely be of great benefit to all the workers of Venezuela.


>Detroit — General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets. GM has about 2,700 workers in the troubled country, where it’s been the market leader for over 35 years. It also has 79 dealers that employ 3,900 people, and its parts suppliers make up more than half of Venezuela’s auto parts market, the company said. if the government permits it, workers will get separation benefits “arising from the termination of employment relationships due to causes beyond the parties’ control,” the GM statement said. Dealers will continue to service vehicles and provide parts, the company said. Companies have been cutting operations in Venezuela as a result of runaway inflation and strict currency controls. Last May, tire maker Bridgestone sold its business there after six decades of operating in the country.

By Corina Pons | CARACAS

General Motors' (GM.N) Venezuelan subsidiary has sent a message to almost 2,700 staff informing them that they are no longer employed by the company and had received severance pay in their bank accounts, according to two employees.

A Venezuelan court last week ordered the seizure of the company's Valencia plant, ruling in favor of two dealers that had filed a case in 2000 against the subsidiary on grounds they had not complied with an agreed sale of 10,000 vehicles.

Workers say that before the seizure was announced, GM had been dismantling the plant, which has not produced a car since the beginning of 2016 because of shortages of parts and strict currency controls in the OPEC nation.

The seizure, which GM called "illegal," comes amid a deepening economic and social crisis in leftist-led Venezuela that has already roiled many U.S. companies.

"We all received a payment and a text message," said a worker who had worked for the company for more than a decade, adding that his corporate email account had been deactivated over the weekend.

"Our former bosses told us the executives left and we were all fired. There is no longer anyone in the country," added another employee who received the same message on his personal cell phone and a payment to his account. He had been at GM for five years.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the layoffs or the worker allegations it had already been dismantling the plant.

GM said last week that it was halting operations and laying off workers due to the "illegal judicial seizure of its assets."


The leftist government of (((Nicolas Maduro))) says it is not seeking to expropriate the plant, which has been operating for 35 years, and has called on GM to come back.

"To the current General Motors president of Venezuela, Jose Cavaileri: You come here, show your face and share with us the options to restore normality," said Labor Minister Francisco Torrealba said Monday.

GM is not the first company to fire Venezuela employees by text message. Clorox (CLX.N) did the same two years ago when announcing its exit from the crisis-struck country, after which workers took over the plant.

GM's plant closure comes after Venezuela's automobile production fell in 2016 to a record low of eight cars per day, according to a local automotive group.

Two union spokespeople said they had no official company information on the layoffs, but said that most workers received the messages along with a bank deposit.

Neither employee would reveal the amount they received but union leaders said it was too low.
