General Motors has borrowed another $4 billion from the Treasury ahead of its June 1 deadline to restructure or face bankruptcy, the Wall Street Journal reports. A statement from the automakers said the loan, which brings the total borrowed to nearly $20 billion, is "to maintain adequate liquidity" during restructuring efforts. GM is widely expected to file for bankruptcy next week.
The loan is $1.4 billion more than expected, which GM said was due to "updated timing of when certain expenses would be incurred." The automaker, which reached a cost-cutting deal with the Canadian Auto Workers union yesterday, plans to cut another 3,400 white-collar jobs in the US, the Detroit Free Press reports.
