DETROIT (AP) _ General Motors says about 3,600 workers will be laid off indefinitely beginning early next year as the automaker slows down production at 10 of its assembly plants.

They include the Fairfax plant in Kansas City, Kan.

GM spokesman Anthony Sapienza said today the production line ``re-rates,'' as they are called, help reduce inventory and adjust to shrinking market demand.

The slowdown at the Kansas City plant will begin Feb. 2.

The plant makes the popular Chevrolet Malibu and the Saturn Aura.
