Toronto, Ontario — February 19, 2019 — More than 200 Unifor members attended the Canadian Auto Show this weekend in Toronto to boycott General Motors vehicles made in Mexico.
The group, which included workers and retirees from the Oshawa Assembly Plant, showed up at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Saturday wearing #SaveOshawaGM t-shirts.
“I am so proud of these fearless activists who will stop at nothing in the fight to convince GM it is not too late to reverse its plans for the Oshawa plant,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor national president.
Unifor members chanted “Sell here? Build here!” in the middle of GM’s display.
“We will not give up and we will not be intimidated by GM or anyone else. That is why we held a mini-rally right where GM would take notice, in the heart of the auto show,” said Colin James, President, Local 222.
Activists handed out leaflets with information on how to support the union’s efforts to stop the closure of the Oshawa plant and save 24 thousand Canadian jobs.
