UNIFOR not letting GM leave Oshawa without a fight

GM Announces Massive Restructuring Plan Will Close up to 5 Assembly Plants & Cut Thousands of Jobs

Tory said that the workers who will be affected by the closing of the Oshawa plants as "very skilled" people, who are among "the best at what they do in the world".

"We're going to have to use every trick and every tool and all the power of the government to make sure GM understands they're not betraying this country again".

He said the move was part of a wider need to stay nimble and adapt, especially after the 2008 recession.

GM announced that the Oshawa Assembly Plant will be "unallocated in 2019", meaning the plant will be closing with no product to make.

Oshawa Mayor John Henry said the closure would have ripple effects well beyond his city.

Patterson said that the Oshawa plant has the capacity to run six shifts day but for the last several years had only been running three shifts. It is part of a wider restructuring that will eliminate 15,000 jobs, GM said on Monday. The auto industry's been a big part of the province of Ontario for over 100 years, " Henry said in a phone interview. "I have certainly expressed my willingness to be a part of looking for a solution that takes those smart people and the assets that we have and tries to find a way in which they can contribute".

"What we're going to implement is that they can work the 20 hours and then they will be allowed to collect EI".

At the time of the transfer, Dias said Carlisle's appointment to head Cadillac would raise his profile and influence within GM's headquarters in Detroit, and that "would be a huge benefit for us".

Bains said the consumer preferences were the basis for the decision and the closure was related to the decline in demand for GM's sedan vehicles and increased demand for vehicles like trucks. "Oshawa built GM", French added in a tweet. But I think what is really positive is that the workers are back at the plant today and they are doing what Canadians do.

Last week, the Canadian government gave corporations like GM a tax giveaway of 14 billion Canadian dollars (about 10.5 billion USA dollars) to guarantee jobs remain in Canada.

Warren Transmission is set to close in August 2019 while Detroit-Hamtramck will start layoffs in March.
