The head of the Canadian Auto Worker's union, Buzz Hargrove, told Reuters Monday that 3,880 Canadian jobs will be lost in GM's latest round of cutbacks. This represents more than 12 percent of the 30,000 jobs cut as part of the restructuring plan announced by GM chairman and CEO Rick wagoner.

The majority of the Canadian job cuts are concentrated in a single community, Oshawa, Ontario, where one plant will be closed and another cut from three shifts to two.
