General Motors Suspends Two Engineers Over Ignition Defects

By Martin & Jones on April 10, 2014

General Motors CEO Mary Barra announced Thursday morning that GM has suspended with pay two GM engineers while the company seeks ‘the truth about what happened’ and how it took ten years for GM to issue a safety recall of vehicles with defective ignition switches. The two employees were not named.

An article in the New York Times talks about GM’s announcement and the details that have led to government investigation of why GM did not correct the defect that so far has been linked to 13 deaths.
