The Canadian Auto Workers responds strongly to the announcement.
General Motors plans to move the production of its Chevrolet Camaro from Canada to the United States, outraging many Canadian autoworkers.
Officials for GM say the shift from Oshawa, Ontario, to the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, is likely to occur within the next few years.
GM says lower capital investments and production efficiencies are key reasons for the move.
However, the announcement was met with a strong response from the Canadian Auto Workers, according to the Detroit News.
"General Motors has once again shown a complete and utter disregard for its workers and also Canadians in general, whose tax dollars kept the company out of bankruptcy," says Ken Lewenza, president, CAW.
The group released a statement saying GM must replace the Camaro production in Ontario to offset job losses.
