Toronto, Sept 20 (Canadian-Media): More temporary job losses at General Motors (GM)'s assembly plant in Oshawa, Ontario resulted as a strike in U.S. by 49,000 United Auto Workers against General Motors, media reports said.
"We plan to resume these operations as quickly as possible upon resolution of the UAW strike," GM spokesperson Jennifer Wright said in a statement.
Unifor, the union for the Canadian workers, said that workers will be paid during the temporary layoffs .
Meanwhile, details are becoming clearer on GM's offer to invest $7 billion US in U.S. facilities, an offer made on the eve of the strike that began Monday to include $2 billion from joint ventures and suppliers for new plants that would pay workers less than the top union wage, a person briefed on the matter said.
CEO Mary Barra's prediction of an "all-electric future" for GM, was a threat to gas-powered cars, which could be in jeopardy.
