Unifor Rally in Windsor

More than two thousand people attended the Windsor rally, held directly across the border from GM’s headquarters in Detroit, to protest GM’s expansion into Mexico while the company pulls manufacturing and jobs from Canada and the U.S. GM announced that it intends to close Oshawa Assembly at the end of the year, even though it concedes that it would not hurt its bottom line to maintain the plant. Four American facilities were also targeted for closure. GM was the top selling manufacturer in both Canada and the U.S. last year, raking in $6 billion in profits during the first nine months of 2018, up four-and-a-half times from the previous year. After receiving almost $11 billion in bailout money from Canada, Unifor today called for immediate meetings with GM CEO Mary Barra and the Ontario and Federal governments to press GM to reverse its decision.
