OSHAWA, Ont. (Thursday, February 14, 2019)Sting is a celebrated songwriter and it’s great to have him in Oshawa. We agree that community-based efforts are important to support employees, especially when industries have to change. Pensions, $50-60,000 lump sums, new car vouchers, extended benefits and paid retraining at our local community colleges to prepare employees for over 5,000 good available GTA area jobs are among the supports GM has asked Unifor to start to discuss for Oshawa Assembly workers.
