General Motors expects to cut around 1,000 jobs at its Oshawa manufacturing plant by this November, the automaker said Thursday. Capture d’écran 2015-05-01 à 08.10.20

The union representing the workers said it has been bracing for the cuts since 2012, when GM first announced it will move Chevrolet Camaro production from Oshawa to Michigan.

But a heads-up doesn’t make bad news go down any easier.

“We were aware of it, there’s no doubt about it,” Unifor Local 222 president Ron Svajlenko said Thursday. “But the loss of 1,000 jobs in a community like this is important.”

GM first announced in 2012 that production of the Camaro would cease in Oshawa by 2015. That is now officially scheduled for Nov. 20.

GM expects to reduce the number of hourly employees at the Oshawa assembly operation from 3,600 to 2,600 by the end of the year.
