Unifor president Jerry Dias says General Motors will consider options put forth by the union – to keep the Oshawa assembly plant open.
The news follows the union president’s meeting with officials at G-M’s headquarters in Detroit today – which have led to Dias saying he expects a response by January 7th.
Dias says the company has options – and it shouldn’t be cutting back on jobs when it’s making billions in profits.
G-M blindsided the union and the city of Oshawa when it announced in late November that it was winding down operations at the plant – at a cost of close to three-thousand direct jobs.
