GM workers hold sit-down strike over factory closure in Canada

Workers at the General Motors factory in Oshawa, Ontario, staged a second work stoppage strike on Tuesday after GM confirmed plans to close the facility that will lead to 3,000 people being fired.

The protest Wednesday morning lasted close to two hours and followed a five-hour protest the night before.

GM announced in November it would cut up to 14,000 workers in North America and put five plants up for possible closure.
