GM executives, including Wagoner, scheduled a series of briefings for employees, analysts and reporters on Tuesday, starting at 8:30 a.m., the company said in a statement.

The company said the briefings would detail what GM is doing to "align" its operations to current market conditions.

The No. 1 U.S. automaker has been under intensifying pressure to cut costs because of a rapid shift away from trucks and SUVs and a decline in overall sales.
