Union head: GM threat­ens to move pro­duc­tion

The Columbus Dispatch - - Market Summary -

DETROIT — The pres­i­dent of the Cana­dian auto work­ers union says Gen­eral Mo­tors is threat­en­ing to move pro­duc­tion of the Chevro­let Equinox small SUV to Mex­ico as a strike con­tin­ues at an On­tario fac­tory that makes the same ve­hi­cle.

Uni­for Pres­i­dent Jerry Dias says GM has de­clared war on Canada with the threat. A GM of­fi­cial with knowl­edge of the bar­gain­ing says they’re still talk­ing but are at im­passe over job se­cu­rity.

About 2,500 work­ers at the plant west of Toronto went on strike Sept. 17. The union wants GM to des­ig­nate the plant as the main Equinox pro­ducer.
