Watch how Unifor saved Oshawa GM

It’s not every day that a union gets to make history but that’s exactly what Unifor did. In November of 2018, when GM announced plans to shut down Oshawa, our union launched the most aggressive campaign in its history to keep the assembly line. After months of rallies, TV, newspaper, radio and billboard ads, we managed to maintain a footprint, and save a few hundred jobs. In bargaining this fall, the union, the company, and federal and provincial governments came together to create a plan to return truck assembly to Oshawa.
