Trudeau’s buddy Dias – who supports the media bailout and calls himself the ‘resistance’ to the Conservatives – says he’s open to mass walkouts at GM plants across North America.
Unifor head Jerry Dias (AKA Biased Dias) wants to shut down all GM plants in North America in an effort to stop the closure of the Oshawa plant.
After calling for tariffs on Mexican-made cars, Dias told BNN Bloomberg, “And two, I’m meeting with the head of the [United Automobile Workers] next Wednesday. If I had my way, we’d shut down every General Motors manufacturing plant in Canada and the United States until they got the message. That’s how I would deal with it.”
The United Auto Workers are highly unlikely to agree to Dias’ idea of shutting down all plants, since it would be total economic devastation and would likely cause even more plant closures, backfiring entirely.
While Dias isn’t busy talking about shutting down plants, he’s been getting buddy-buddy with Justin Trudeau. From his role in negotiating the USMCA trade deal that many feel was very bad for Canada, to supporting the media bailout, and to pledging to interfere in the 2019 election and defeat the Conservatives, Dias has been doing Trudeau’s bidding for some time now.
Unsurprisingly, the Trudeau-Dias relationship hasn’t gotten any results for auto workers.
