GM shutdown in Oshawa

 

GM workers in Oshawa are staging another sit-down protest over the planned closure of their facility.

The work stoppage was confirmed this morning following an earlier protest yesterday.

The protests come after GM refused to budge on plans to close the plant.

Union officials met with GM on Tuesday to discuss various proposals to keep the plant open beyond the planned closure later this year.

GM was firm in its plan saying the cost of keeping it open would not be financially viable to the automaker.
