TORONTO: Production resumed at General Motors’ assembly plant in Oshawa, Ontario on Friday afternoon, ending a near three-hour standstill, after striking workers at seat supplier Lear Corp returned to work, the autoworkers’ union said. After Oshawa exhausted its on-hand supplies of seats, production came to a stop around 12:30 pm, GM Canada said. It was unclear if both car and truck assembly was affected and what impact the stoppage had on daily production, said spokesman David Paterson. Full production of Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks have resumed at the Oshawa plant, said Unifor Local 222 President Colin James. Oshawa produces about 250 Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Impala cars daily, on one shift, and approximately 450 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado trucks daily, on two shifts. (REUTERS)
