GM Cutting Jobs in Canada

  • Tim Hortons will soon expand into Mexico for the first time ever

Union officials say General Motors is cutting up to 600 jobs at its assembly plant near London.

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

Dias told Reuters that the GM decision "came right out of left field".

U.S. President Donald Trump has been outspoken about his plans to revise NAFTA, calling it the worst trade deal the U.S. has ever signed.

GM says it will shift production of the GMC Terrain SUV from a plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, to one in Mexico.

The Ingersoll facility builds the Chevrolet Equinox and the GMC Terrain.

Albright: I'm 'Ready To Register As Muslim' To Fight Trump
At the Women's Global March last weekend, Albright declared: "If you force Muslims to register, we will all register as Muslims". Other human rights activists have pledged to fight Trump's so-called Muslim ban by standing in solidarity with Muslims.

But GM says the move, which was announced earlier this month, was in the works for years.

"We've lost 500,000 manufacturing jobs as a result of NAFTA", Dias said.

When asked whether layoffs were in the works at other Ontario facilities, a spokeswoman said that Friday's announcement related only to "an employment impact at CAMI due to the changeover of older model Equinoxes to the next-generation Equinox".

"Well the facts are, jobs are not going from the United States to Canada. It stinks, it's just GM up to their normal stupid games again and taking jobs out of Canada for no reason", adds Van Boekel.

Before 2006, Canada's auto sector had an annual trade surplus of around $10 billion. Today, we have a $120 billion deficit. "Make in United States of America or pay big border tax!" "It is awful", said Van Boekel. We have been working six days a week for eight years and now this.
