General Motors will idle their Arlington, Texas plant due to a parts shortage, although details were not given as to what the specific issue was.

The factory builds vehicles like the Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade. A UAW representative told Automotive News that two 10-hour overtime shifts would be cancelled. So far, the standard 10-hour shifts from Monday to Thursday appear unaffected, although the overtime hours have been a constant at the plant for over a year.

A GM spokesman said that the shifts would be “rescheduled” although further details were not provided.
