General Motors has confirmed it will cut 100 research and development positions at its Warren, Michigan, Technical Center and will close another R&D lab in Bangalore, India.

The cuts are about a 25-percent reduction in the Warren facility and are part of a "global restructuring."

"These moves will enable the organization to better focus on commercializing customer-focused innovation in a more efficient and cost effective manner," GM spokesman Dan Flores tells The Detroit News.

If they aren't offered new positions, affected workers will have 30 days to apply for other posts within GM before the layoffs commence in early June.
