Report: GM Adds Shift At Camaro Plant

Newspaper says demand for the Camaro reportedly has prompted General Motors to add a work week in June at the Oshawa, Ontario, plant instead of a week off.

OSHAWA, Ontario (AP) -- A newspaper says demand for the Camaro reportedly has prompted General Motors Corp. to add the week of June 29 as a scheduled work week at the Oshawa, Ontario, plant instead of a week off.

The Peterborough Examiner reported Wednesday the flex line workers at the assembly plant will also start working overtime on Saturdays in June, July and August.

This report comes less than a week after GM said it would slash its work force by more than half by 2014 as part of a broad restructuring.
