Looks as if the economy is trickling down slowly but surly.Read on Peak of Ohio where Honda is closing a few days at Christmas and that AGC is going to do away with 50 jobs/people. We all expected this to effect most work forces but if Honda would have a major shutdown or layoff the area counties will feel a major loss,As I'm sure it will also effect HTM,KTH,NKP.If you look at a broad picture this is a large group of workers that could be affected.

This is just the look of things to come. I work for a large company contracted to Honda and have seen things starting to slow down for some time. Hopefully Congress will step in and give them the help they need to get back on there feet. The whole auto industry is suffering, and they along with there suppliers employee a whole bunch of people.

Yes, Honda shuts down over Christmas. However, this year Honda is giving their employees the opportunity to take an additional 2 days off without pay and without penalty, take 2 days vacation or come in and work. I don't believe, based on what I've heard that it has anything to do with production. More to do with maintenance.
Thanks for asking

Honda reducing production next month
Written by Bill Tipple
Thursday, 20 November 2008
The current downturn in customer demand for motor vehicles has created a very serious situation for all automakers, including Honda in North America.

In order to maintain appropriate dealer inventory levels, Honda of America Manufacturing will reduce production levels at the Marysville and East Liberty Auto Plants by canceling production on Monday, December 22nd and Tuesday, December 23rd. This will extend the annual holiday shutdown to a full two weeks and reduce car and light truck production by approximately 6,000 units.

Along with the two auto plants, Honda's Anna Engine Plant and Marysville's Motorcycle Plant also will cancel production December 22nd and December 23rd.

In addition to reductions announced earlier, Honda Manufacturing of Alabama will eliminate an additional 12,000 units of production through March 31st, 2009.

To accomplish this, the Alabama Plant will reduce production from 1,300 units to 1,150 units per day in January and February and down to 1,000 units in March.

The Alabama Plant produces the Odyssey Minivan and Pilot.

Nope this tells it is due to cutting production.

It has to do with production. If this doesn't work, there will be other measures looked into. Finding days to use, to keep from laying off or reducing. Incorporating them into holidays for now. This is only the first round for AGC. There is talk of more cuts in employees if economy doesn't turn around and if the need for autos doesn't increase. Not going to be good for alot of places in this area. Slim times ahead.

Honda's in a much better position than Toyota. I saw where the port in Long Beach, CA is backed up with import cars and nowhere to put them - with more on the way because Toyota's not shutting down production quickly enough. Honda workers had better be looking for creative ways to save money - for themselves AND Honda - any way they can!

Don't be to hard on yourself the Examiner added this to what the radio had:

These non-production days will be designated “no-pay, no-penalty days” and associates may cover these days with vacation or report to work for training, maintenance or other duties beside production, or take no pay with no penalties in regard to attendance etc
