The closure of the General Moters plant in Oshawa is making headlines, and the CIRHR is lending its expertise.
Director Rafael Gomez sat in for a call-in discussion on CBC Radio's Ontario Today
Former CIRHR Director Anil Verma spoke to the Candian Press about the future for autoworkers:
The exit strategy for labour is to negotiate a good deal. To buy time, that’s one thing the union can do. I heard the president of Unifor thundering that he won’t go down without a fight, but what are we fighting for? I think we’re fighting for a peaceful and orderly transition and to take care of people.
The CIRHR Library's PWR: work&labour news&research has a special Oshawa issue out today. See their Tumblr for all their covereage of the GM plant shutdown as the story develops.
