Job action at General Motor’s CAMI plant in Ingersoll has forced a local auto parts supplier to temporarily layoff about 100 workers.

570 NEWS has learned that Tenneco’s manufacturing facility on Conestoga Boulevard will start handing out the temporary notices on Sunday, and will continue until the CAMI strike is over.

A company spokesperson says in a release that affected employees are expected to be called back into work once production at the CAMI assembly plant resumes.

Tenneco supplies the complete exhaust system for the Chevy Equinox, which is produced in Ingersoll.

Thursday marks day four of the strike.
