GM workers briefly shut plants in Ontario

Angry employees briefly shut down a General Motors plant in Ontario to protest the impending closure of a truck assembly line that employs 2,600 people.
Union leaders say there is no end in sight to their protests.
Workers have been blocking the GM's Canadian head office since Wednesday, but early Saturday morning, about 100 people took to their cars and drove in a slow convoy around the truck and car plants in Oshawa.
Union spokesman Keith Osborne says trucks delivering parts could not get in, forcing a shutdown at both the car and truck plants that lasted several hours.
General Motors announced this week that four plants in North America will close next year, including the Oshawa truck assembly line.
