The General Motors Co. says the shutdown at the complex in Lordstown, outside Youngstown, begins with Monday night shifts and it was expected that earlier Monday shifts would be shortened.

The Detroit-based automaker says it is working with the supplier in an effort to resume production soon.

The complex, with production and stamping plants, employs about 4,500 people.
