National Post (National Edition) - - FINANCIAL POST -

Au­towork­ers from across On­tario vowed Fri­day to keep fight­ing Gen­eral Mo­tors’ plans to shut­ter a prom­i­nent plant in the prov­ince as the com­pany an­nounced an im­prove­ment to its fi­nan­cial fore­cast for the year ahead. Mem­bers of Uni­for, the union rep­re­sent­ing the bulk of the 2,600 work­ers af­fected by the com­pany’s plans to close its plant in Oshawa, Ont., gath­ered in Wind­sor, Ont., to voice their on­go­ing op­po­si­tion to the move. The union had bused mem­bers in from On­tario com­mu­ni­ties in­clud­ing Kitch­ener and Bramp­ton. They gath­ered at GM’s Wind­sor head­quar­ters to hold a rally dur­ing an in­vestor’s meet­ing that was tak­ing place in nearby Detroit. “We’re not a happy group here in Canada, and we’re damn well pre­pared to show you how mad we re­ally are,” Uni­for pres­i­dent Jerry Dias, pic­tured, said at the rally.
