Jerry Dias, president of Unifor, the union that represents employees at Detroit Three procedures in Canada, has stated in no uncertain terms there will be the strike if Oshawa isn’t given a mandate to produce vehicles?past 2017, reports the Monetary Post.
The latest barb arrives before a planned press conference this Friday?when?Vehicle Canada is expected to announce 1,000 engineering jobs for that company’s connected and driverless vehicle research as well as development.
President of GM Canada, Steve Carlisle, has openly stated not to expect a decision upon Oshawa’s future until after the conclusion at work negotiations, but Dias isn’t taking it any longer.
From the Financial Post:
“The reality is that unless of course we have a solution for Oshawa, there will not be a contract,” said Jerry Dias, nationwide president of Unifor, the actual union that represents GM Canada’s workers.
When asked in the event that there could be a hit if no brand new vehicles are delivered to Oshawa, Dias said, “Oh, there will be.”
The Monetary Post states there are 2,500 blue-collar jobs on the line at Oshawa Car Set up in Oshawa, Ontario. The plant, which produces the?Chevy Equinox, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Regal as well as Cadillac XTS, recently misplaced 1,000 jobs when Camaro production?moved to Michigan.
Dias didn’t stipulate if Unifor members would strike just in Oshawa or at all Game master Canada plants, which include GM’s CAMI facility in Ingersoll, Ontario, and an engine plant in Street. Catherines, Ontario.
