GM moving more than 600 jobs from Canada to Mexico: union


"My first reaction is sadness", Comiskey told AM980 hours after General Motors announced they were shifting production of the GMC Terrain from the CAMI plant to Mexico.

Mike Van Boekel, spokesman for Unifor Local 88, says the layoffs will take effect in July at the CAMI Assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont., which now employs 2,800 Unifor workers.

GM did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

"General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to USA auto dealers-tax free across border", Trump tweeted.

"Everything we've been led to understand is that by concentrating the Equinox production on our Ingersoll facilities, everything was going to be fine", Dias said. "This has nothing to do with Trump, but it has everything to do with NAFTA".

About 3,100 workers assemble the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers. He met with the chief executives of the Big Three U.S. automakers earlier this week, urging them to build more U.S. plants and invest less in Mexico.

General Motors of Canada Ltd. vice-president of corporate affairs David Paterson said the layoff notices are not related to the Terrain, but stem from the end of production of the older generation of the Equinox in July.

"This is NAFTA", he said. "Now we know that is not correct".
