Premier Promises To Support Workers After GM Plant Closure

Posted November 27, 2018

"Let me tell you folks in OH and in this area, don't sell your house", Trump said, to applause.

"This is a warning and we all must be concerned about protecting jobs and keeping them in this country. It's going to happen".

General Motors will close its production plant in Oshawa along with four facilities in the U.S.as part of a global reorganization that will see the company focus on electric and autonomous vehicle programs. "They told me straight up there's nothing we can do", he said. "It made me feel that he wasn't lying and he was being honest".

Unifor, Canada's largest private sector union, said in a prepared statement that it does not have complete details of Monday's announcement, but it has been informed that there is no product allocated to the Oshawa plant past December 2019. The company has scaled back production at its plants, with its hourly workforce down by 4,000 people in 2017, according to GM's annual report.

The company has marked a sedan plant in Detroit, a compact auto plant in OH, and another assembly plant outside Toronto for possible closure.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is deeply disappointed General Motors is closing its Oshawa assembly plant and will do everything possible to help workers who will lose their jobs.

Donald Trump asks USA court to fast-track trans military ban ruling
That proposal replaced President Trump's plan to ban all transgender military members, which he announced via Twitter in 2017. Trump reversed the policy, prompting outrage and lawsuits, which were ruled against the Trump administration.

In 2005, GM cut 3,750 jobs with the shutdown of the Oshawa No. 2 plant and the elimination of a shift at its other auto line.

At the factories, around 3,300 blue-collar workers could lose jobs in Canada and another 2,600 in the US, but some USA workers could transfer to truck or SUV factories that are increasing production.

Unlike its plants making passenger cars, many of GM's plants producing its higher-margin trucks and SUVs are running on three shifts, with some running six and sometimes seven days a week to keep up with demand.

Too many of GM's factories are operating on a single shift to build models that have fallen out of favor, leading its plants to run about 1 million vehicles short of their full capacity, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of industry, labor and economics for the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Ford said along with shock and sadness, come feelings of anger and betrayal.

Dias said he had spoken to Ontario Premier Doug Ford about the closure announcement and would be meeting with the federal government on Tuesday. "They better put something else in".

China, meanwhile, wanted a reaffirmation of opposition to protectionism and unilateralism that it says the U.S.is engaging in. Pence also knocked China for loans to developing countries in the Pacific and beyond.

Even as GM is moving to lay off salaried staff, the company is hiring.

"So far, President Trump has been asleep at the switch and owes this community an explanation", Ryan said in a statement. "What we've gotten instead are broken promises and petty tweets". "That clearly is not happening".

That's cold comfort for Darryl Donnithorne 38, who said he was laid off by GM when it closed its Oshawa truck plant in 2008, He just got hired back a couple of months ago to install windshields on the pickups sent from Indiana.

Congressman Tim Ryan called the decision, "Maddening".

The restructuring announcement also comes after Canada and the USA reached the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, after months of strained negotiations. "The auto workers there are second to none", Governor-elect DeWine said.
