The union representing workers affected by the news of the closure of General Motors' Oshawa plant says it will do whatever it takes to keep the facility operational. Unifor National President Gerry Dias says the union has requested a meeting with GM CEO Mary Barra, and they plan to spend the next year "fighting tooth-and-nail." Workers walked off the line prior to GM's announcement yesterday upon leaning that the Oshawa plant would be one of five North American plants closed as a result of global restructuring of the company's operations at the end of 2019. The decision affects about 2500 workers at the Oshawa location.
