GM plays Mexico wildcard in Canada

Dias said the automaker told his union bluntly on Wednesday that Equinox production in Mexico is being ramped up and production at its CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ont., would wind down if Unifor Local 88 continues its 25-day-old strike. Job security is a main issue in the dispute.

Jerry Dias, the president of the Canadian auto union, says that General Motors has declared war on Canadian workers with its threat to move production to Mexico. The company reportedly made the announcement this week to its union, which represents 3,000 workers.

Dias said in a phone interview Thursday from Washington, D.C., where NAFTA trade talks are being held, that GM's comments were nothing less than a declaration of war on Canada. "No one is going to tell GM where to build their vehicles, and frankly they do not give a damn about Canadian or American jobs".

The workers at the plant, which produces the hot-selling Chevy Equinox, walked off the line more than four weeks ago and GM is beginning to feel the pinch.

The CAMI plant is a prime example of a trend that has been happening for years, with GM adding plants in Mexico while closing Canadian and US plants, Dias said.

In a Facebook post after the strike began, Dias observed that if you want to see what a NAFTA-caused race to the bottom looks like, go to Ingersoll, Ontario.

The talks have been shrouded in controversy due to US President Donald Trump's desire to keep jobs in the United States, and to ensure that all trade deals are fair for the three member countries. "It has to stop".

General Motors Canada did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this week, Trudeau met with politicians and business leaders in Washington as part of his government's NAFTA negotiation strategy.
