    GM to add workers, boost output at Canadian plants

    By TOM KRISHER (AP)

    March 26, 2010

    DETROIT ó General Motors Co. will bring back 600 laid-off auto workers and add equipment at two Canadian factories in an effort make more midsize crossover vehicles that have been selling well in both the U.S. and Canada.

    The company announced Friday that it will add equipment and reconfigure the body-making shop at its factory in Ingersoll, Ontario, where it makes the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers.

    It also will put hundreds of workers back on the clock at a factory in Oshawa, Ontario, and add equipment to the plant so it can make Equinoxes in addition to its current product, the Chevrolet Impala full-size sedan.

    GM has been struggling to meet demand for the two crossovers, which are like small sport utility vehicles but built on car underpinnings. When equipped with a four-cylinder engine, the vehicles can get up to 32 mpg on the highway.

    So far this year, GM has sold 17,574 Equinoxes and 8,091 Terrains. Equinox sales are up 98 percent from last year, while the Terrain is a newer vehicle and few had been built at this time last year.

    Dealers have complained that they canít get enough of the vehicles because they sell as soon as they come off the truckÖ

    -------------------------------

    I hope the Canadians appreciate our tax dollars helping put them back to work. And odd... Canada can build Full-sized sedans? SUVs? Apparently, itís okay as long as they arenít made in the USA.
    Rest In Peace America

    Are the Canadian workers UAW?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
