GM plays Mexico wildcard in Canada

General Motors Canada says it wants to reach an agreement with 2,800 of its striking workers in Ontario - but the automaker giant says worldwide and domestic trade talks keep getting in the way. He requested anonymity because GM doesn't normally speak publicly about negotiations.

GM now builds the popular Equinox at three North American facilities: the CAMI plant, and two Mexican plants.

GM told the union it's ramping up production of the Equinox at two Mexican plants, according to Dias.

About 2,500 workers at the plant west of Toronto went on strike September 17.

UAE Ends Mission of its Ambassador to North Korea
The statement said the UAE "looks forward to a unified global front against North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile program". North Korean laborers working overseas are one of the major sources of foreign currency for Pyongyang.

About 2 500 workers at a factory in Ingersoll, Ontario, walked off the job on September 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. Mr. Dias said GM's relocation of some SUV production to Mexico is "the poster child for what's wrong with Nafta". 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. The automaker invested $800 million to retool the plant for the new model.

The CAMI plant was projected to build about 210 000 vehicles in 2018, while two plants in Mexico together were projected to build about 150 000 vehicles next year, according to AutoForecast Solutions, a forecasting firm.

The union reports in a statement that GM halted production of the Terrain in Ingersoll, Ontario and that 100 percent of its production is now based in Mexico. GM sources said the union shouldn't get bogged down on national trade agreement policies that can't be resolved in a smaller-scale collective agreement.

The lengthening strike is playing out as negotiators for the U.S., Canada and Mexico continue discussions in Washington over potential changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement.
