The Canadian Auto Workers union said Friday that 11,000 members at three Ontario assembly plants will likely accept the loss of up to 2,500 jobs to keep all three plants open, and in hopes that the plants will get new investment from GM, and possibly the contract to build the new Camaro.

GM had planned to close two of the plants by 2009, as the models assembled there are phased out. If the plants closed, 5,600 jobs would be lost.

The CAW proposes that the two plants be merged into a single flexible assembly plant capable of producing different vehicles, which will be more likely to attract investment in new-model tooling from GM, hopefully for the new Camaro.
