AU­TOS: GM threat­ens to shift work out of Canada

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - BUSINESS -

The pres­i­dent of the Cana­dian auto work­ers union says Gen­eral Mo­tors is threat­en­ing to make more Chevro­let Equinox SUVs in Mex­ico as a strike con­tin­ues at an On­tario fac­tory. Uni­for Pres­i­dent Jerry Dias says GM has de­clared war on Canada with the threat. About 2,500 work­ers at the plant west of Toronto went on strike Sept. 17 over job se­cu­rity. The union wants GM to des­ig­nate the plant as the main Equinox pro­ducer. A GM of­fi­cial with knowl­edge of the bar­gain­ing says they’re still talk­ing but are at an im­passe over the is­sue.
