(WTNH) — About 1,200 General Motors workers in Canada will be temporarily laid off because of a strike by fellow employees in the U.S.
The company says the strike is affecting one line at a plant in Ontario that builds pickup trucks. According to a statement, the issue is the supply of parts from the U.S.
The strike in the U.S is focused on pay and benefits, and the way GM uses temporary workers.
