General Motors Purge Spreads to Canada

Derek Abma from the Financial Post: Windsor's Transmission Plant will shut down for a week starting Monday as GM adjusts inventory. When the plant reopens February 23, the 1000 unionized production workers will start rotating layoffs that are expected to continue indefinitely as a result of slumping vehicle sales. The Windsor factory - which makes transmissions for the Chevrolet Malibu and HHR, Pontiac G5 and G6, and Saturn Aura and Vue - is scheduled to close in June 2010.
