General Motors is placing nearly a third of workers at its western New York engine plant on an indefinite layoff, saying it needs to align production with consumer demand.

In a statement Tuesday, GM spokeswoman Nina Price cited the overall weak economy and said GM is continuing to monitor changes in the market.

The layoffs take effect Jan. 26.
