OSHAWA, Ont. (AP) -- An almost two-week long blockade at the GM Canada plant in Oshawa, Ont., had been dismantled early Monday, according to a Canadian Auto Workers Union official.
Keith Osborne, chairman of the CAW Local 222, said pickets left the scene by 7 a.m. ET as ordered under a court injunction issued late last week.
He said CAW members drove around the GM site once then gathered in a company parking lot for a brief meeting before dispersing.
However, Osborne warned there could be other actions in coming days and weeks to protest plans to shut down the GM truck plant in the city east of Toronto in 2009.
''Anything from rotating information pickets ... not just the GM facilities across Ontario but also the feeder plants, possibly even going to Ottawa or Detroit.'' he said.
''We have a lot of things that we could do.''
Osborne said he would meet with the union lawyers in Toronto late Monday morning to discuss bringing the dispute to the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
The blockade began June 4 after the company announced plans to shut down its Oshawa truck plant and eliminate some 2,600 jobs.
GM has said the decision to close the Oshawa plant and three others in North America came after a sudden collapse in the U.S. market for pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles.
