New Plans For GM Facility

General Motors workers met with their union yesterday to discuss plans announced by the company this week to invest $170 million in their Oshawa facility, saving roughly 300 jobs. Many employees say it’s small consolation on the heels of last year’s announcement that the plant would close at the end of 2019 resulting in 2,300 job losses. GM Canada’s president Travis Hester said the company plans to be one of Oshawa’s leading employers for many decades to come. Although vehicle production will still be discontinued this year, the new arrangement will see the facility converted to a part-stamping operation and an autonomous vehicle testing track.
