GM-Canada
(2008-06-11)
(wgvu) - OSHAWA, Ontario (AP) - An Ontario government official says
discussions are being held with General Motors Corp. about adding a
third car line at an Oshawa truck plant.
Economic Development and Trade Minister Sandra Pupatello says
today that the government wants to talk about "what's next" for
GM.
GM has said it would close the plant next year due to rising
fuel costs and lower demand for trucks. The plant employs 2,600
people.
Workers have been blocking access to GM's Canadian headquarters
in protest.
GM has applied for a court order to end the blockade and says it
is seeking $1.5 million in compensation from the Canadian Auto
Workers local union and some of its members.
Local 222 president Chris Buckley says the plant has remained in
operation throughout the protest.
