GM to shut down Oshawa plant - thousands to be laid off

Sources inside the government have confirmed that a General Motors plant in Oshawa, Ont., is set to close.

It's unclear how many employees will lose their jobs, since this is part of a larger global restructuring plan, the sources said.

In a statement, Unifor, the union representing auto workers at the plant, said they have not heard "complete details of the overall announcement" but were told that no cars are set to be assembled at the plant past December 2019.
