GM Oshawa takes another hit

General Motors will halt production at its sputtering Oshawa truck plant for up to eight more weeks this year because of a continuing sharp drop in pickup sales.


“I don’t think they really know yet where the market is going or how many weeks will be taken out,” said Greg Moffatt, chairperson for the Canadian Auto Workers.


GM has already scheduled a regular two-week summer shutdown in July at the Oshawa truck and car plants.


In the U.S., GM’s Janesville, Wis., operation faces the biggest cut with a stoppage of two weeks next month and 10 more weeks through the remainder of the year.
