General Motors is cutting overtime production this weekend at two U.S. assembly plants that produce its highly profitable full-size pickups due to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage impacting the global automotive industry.

The plants in Flint, Michigan and Fort Wayne, Indiana produce a mix of the company’s full-size pickups, including Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 models s as well as their larger siblings.

This is the first time the Detroit automaker has cut production shifts for its full-size pickups due to the months-long chip shortage. GM has significantly cut production at its car and crossover plants in North America to prioritize chips for the pickups as well as the company’s full-size SUVs.
