The Canadian Auto Workers union says it “didn’t get very far” in its meeting yesterday with General Motors, as the company held onto its decision to close its Oshawa truck plant next year.


Union president Buzz Hargrove says the union tried to find a way to help GM deal with the weakening demand for trucks.


The union says GM promised in its latest collective agreement to keep the truck plant in production for the three-year life of the contract.
