Lansing Grand River Assembly canceled production for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Mike Green, president of the UAW 652 tells News Ten that because of treacherous road conditions in Canada, the plant was unable to receive parts to keep the line running.

Workers were at the plant for about four hours Tuesday, from 6-10 a.m. when they ran out of parts, Green said.

GM says regular operations will resume the normal shift starting time on Thursday, unless otherwise communicated.

As for the Delta Township plant--- UAW Local 602 President Brian Fredline says first shift was sent home a couple hours early Tuesday--- but second and third shift will go on as planned. He tells News 10 parts are being flown in, so hopefully, production will not be affected.
