The Oshawa General Motors plant appears set to close before 2020 as no product has been allocated to the location past 2019, with several sources telling media on Sunday it will be announced the next day.

Unifor, the union representing workers at the plant,┬ásaid in a statement they have not heard “complete details” but have been informed that no cars are set to be assembled at the plant past December 2019.

“Based on commitments made during 2016 contract negotiations, Unifor does not accept this announcement and is immediately calling on GM to live up to the spirit of that agreement.”

In 2016, the multinational General Motors company heavily invested in the Oshawa location to help it stay open until 2020.

“We have no news or comment tonight and won’t be commenting to others on speculation,” a spokesperson for the auto company said on Sunday evening, reported national media.
