GM CEO Fires 15 Over ‘Pattern Of Incompetence’, General Motors has reviewed the results of a months-long internal investigation into its ignition-switch problem conducted by former US Attorney Anton Valukas.

Barra told a group of GM employees that the report was “extremely thorough, brutally tough and deeply troubling.”
She said the report highlighted a pattern of incompetence and neglect through multiple areas of the automaker that contributed to the deaths of at least 13 people in accidents attributed to the ignition-switch problem.
As a result of the investigation, Barra said that the company has fired 15 people associated with those failures and disciplined five others. Earlier documents had revealed that GM knew of the ignition-switch problems for more than a decade, but had done nothing to fix the problem.
She also confirmed that General Motors would establish a victims’ compensation fund that would be administered by Ken Feinberg, who was brought aboard the company in response to the problem.
