OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) -- General Motors said Monday that it would move to end the blockade of its Canadian headquarters by the Canadian Auto Workers union, angered by the company's plan to close an Ontario truck assembly plant.
The company said it will ''seek collaborative or such necessary legal means required'' to end the blockade of its offices.
The union blockaded the office after GM announced the planned closure of four plants in North America, including the Oshawa location where some 2,600 people work.
GM said it will work with the union, but it can't keep building the same number of large trucks as consumers change their preferences in the face of rising gas costs.
''GM will continue to seek all opportunities to work together with the CAW on productive approaches,'' the company said in a statement.
''This includes working together to seek additional car production in Oshawa that is aligned with consumer demand caused by new record fuel prices and vehicle market realities.''
Workers started blocking the company's Canadian head office last Wednesday, but on Saturday about 100 people took to their cars and drove in a slow convoy around the truck and car plants, preventing trucks delivering parts.
The company said some vehicle production Saturday was lost as a result of the union's actions in Oshawa.
