Once a massive economic engine within the city of Oshawa, Ontario, General Motors may be closing up shop. Reports out late Sunday evening suggest the automaker is on the verge of announcing it will pull out of the Canadian city.
Citing numerous sources, CTV is reporting that GM will announce Monday the closure of all of its Oshawa, Ontario facilities. GM currently employs 2,500 union workers and approximately 300 salaried employees within Oshawa. The employees are found in both the company’s massive assembly complex and a corporate office.
At one time GM employed nearly 40,000 in Oshawa.
It’s unclear at this time if the rumored announcement will have any impact on the company’s other Canadian operations, including its assembly plants in Ingersoll, Markham and St. Catharines.
