They could close or they could get different vehicles to build. Some of the affected factories could resume production, depending on the outcome of the company's contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers union next year. I believe they'll be opening up something else.
Unions were also angered by the move and the UAW said "General Motors decision ... to stop production at the Lordstown, Ohio, and Hamtramck, Michigan, assembly plants will idle thousands of workers, and will not go unchallenged".
