Canadian Labour Congress president Ken Georgetti pledged the support of his 3.2 million members to General Motors workers in Oshawa yesterday as their round-the-clock blockade of the company’s Canadian head­- quarters entered its fifth day.


Georgetti urged unions across the country to get behind the GM workers, saying they weren’t the only ones under assault.


“We’re losing jobs by the bucketfuls because (corporations) can exploit workers in China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Mexico, and we’re letting them do that,” Georgetti said.


A three-hour motorcade circled GM’s Oshawa truck and car plants on Saturday.
