GM Canada recalling workers

By canadianpontiacguy

General Motors of Canada says it will recall workers at Ontario plants this year to build more Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossover SUVs.

GM said Friday it will recall about 600 laid-off workers at its Oshawa assembly plant, moving to three shifts from two in October.

All 127 laid-off employees at the CAMI plant in Ingersoll will be recalled April 6 and the company will recall 158 employees laid off from plants at other plants in Windsor, St. Catharines and Woodstock.

GM also said it expects to add 70 new jobs at CAMI by August.

The body shop at the CAMI plant will expand to produce more Equinox units, which will then be sent to Oshawa for paint and final assembly.

CAMI will also be able to increase production of the Terrain, GM said.

Combined sales of the Equinox and Terrain are up 100 per cent in Canada and 128 per cent in the United States over the last quarter, the company said.

The Equinox and Terrain vehicles look like SUVs but employ a car platform.
