General Motors says it's moving production of the next version of its Camaro sports car to Lansing from Oshawa, Ontario.
The automaker says the new Camaro will be assembled at its Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan's capital city.
The Canadian Auto Workers' September contract with GM guarantees production of the Camaro in Oshawa only until the end of the current generation.
The union says the decision will cut production in Oshawa by as much as one third starting in late 2015 or early 2016 and calls on the company to replace the production to protect the jobs at the plant.
The Lansing plant now employs about 1,600 people.
