Come to Windsor to Support Autoworkers and Keep GM Jobs in Canada

On Friday, January 11, GM will host an investor event to pitch its future corporate direction.

This direction includes their plan to shut down GM Oshawa, affecting thousands of Unifor members and workers in Canada. GM’s big plan to line the pockets of investors also includes ramping up production in Mexico, exploiting low-paid workers there.

This is the wrong direction for the company. Unifor members need their communities behind them, to say that the Oshawa Assembly Plant must stay open. Will you rally with us?

RSVP and show up to tell GM that you are united beside Canadian autoworkers.

If GM wants to sell in Canada, it needs to build here.

Speaker at the event will include:

  • Jerry Dias, Unifor National President
  • Colin James, President, Unifor Local 222 (Oshawa)
  • Greg Moffatt, Plant Chair, Unifor Local 222 (Oshawa)
  • Warren (Smokey) Thomas, President, OPSEU
  • Additional guest speakers
