DEFIANCE, Ohio (WOWO):  General Motors has told 135 workers at its Defiance, Ohio plant they'll be out of a job before the end of the year.

The company says some of the jobs at the casting plant are temporary. All the jobs will be phased out through December.

The company says they are changing focus to match demand for aluminum engine components. The traditional iron-casted parts are less in demand.

There are more than 1,300 workers at the plant.
