“I think GM is boasting,” said Tony Faria, an auto industry analyst and the director of the Office of Automotive and Vehicle Research at the University of Windsor. 

“They made a major investment in this plant, so I would expect that GM is going to want to get their investment back,” Dias said. “But is there a long-term threat? The answer is absolutely yes.”

Unifor Local 88 at CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll, Ontario and some 2,500 employees went on strike at 10:59 p.m. Sept. 17 with the goal of having GM make their plant the main producer of the Chevrolet Equinox and job security. Dias told the Associated Press that GM has threatened to make more of the Equinoxs in Mexico as the Canadian strike continues.

Strike Forces GM to Explore Alternatives for Equinox Production

Jobs ShiftMeanwhile, Mexico has beat out Canada and the U.S. to win at least eight of nine North American vehicle assembly plants announced between 2011 and 2016, according to the Center for Automotive Research. In January, GM shifted production of the GMC Terrain to Mexico from the Ingersoll plant, costing about 400 jobs.

The factory manufactures four different GM models.

The source from GM says, production in Mexico is “steady” for now.  But the company is studying what it will take to continue to supply the North American market with the Equinox – the automaker’s most popular vehicle. At the same time, the source points out GM has invested $800 million in the Ingersoll plant implying that should speak to the company’s commitment to its workers.

About 2,500 workers at a factory in Ingersoll, Ontario, walked off the job on Sept. 18 after GM rejected Unifor’s call for the automaker to designate the factory, known as CAMI, as the lead production site for the Equinox in North America. The automaker invested $800 million to retool the plant for the new model.

DETROIT (AP) – The president of the Canadian auto workers union says General Motors is threatening to make more Chevrolet Equinox SUVs in Mexico as a strike continues at an Ontario factory.”They have declared war on Canada,” Unifor union president Jerry Dias.{“contentId”:”OXPLZ66S972G01″,”position”:”outstream”,”dimensions”:{“mobile”:[[1,8]]},”strategy”:”always”,”type”:”Outstream Video Native Ad”,”targeting”:{“position”:”outstream”,”url”:”/news/articles/2017-10-12/gm-exploring-alternatives-for-equinox-production-amid-strike”},”containerId”:”outstream-video-2-OXPLZ66S972G01″} The 2,500 hourly workers at Ingersoll have been on strike since Sept. 17, in the first walk-out at a Canadian assembly plant since 1996. GM recently spent C$800 million to retool the plant, which it says is one of its most productive, for the 2019 model of the Equinox.

“We have over 80 new Equinoxes in stock, unheard of,” he said. “If we’re selling 10 to 15 a month, we still got a good four to five months worth of stock.” GM already has the ability to produce the Equinox at two of its Mexico assembly plants, which is exactly what the company is threatening to do if Unifor doesn’t end the strike soon, according to a report in Automotive News.

GM told the union representing workers at the sport-utility plant in Ingersoll, Ontario that should workers continue to strike, it would increase production of the Chevrolet Equinox SUV at two of its facilities in Mexico.

The designation is particularly significant for the union, as about 400 employees were laid off this summer after GM moved production of the GMC Terrain from the CAMI plant to Mexico. Dias said he would not call off the strike.— CANADIANCOMMENTS (View Profile)

The escalation of the assembly plant strike comes as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau begins an official visit to Mexico, while NAFTA negotiations continue in Washington.

“The issue is that Mexican autoworkers earn U.S. $2 per hour and the movement generates good middle-class jobs in Mexico”, Dias explained during his recent participation in talks about the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

“Automotive companies have been establishing their supply chains for more than 20 years predicated on the existence of NAFTA, that we can move parts and vehicles throughout North America without taxes,” said Tony Faria, Director of the Automotive Research and Vehicle Bureau at the University of Windsor in Ontario. “If this agreement disappears, it will be a real problem for car companies.”
