The automaker cited lower costs and "product efficiencies"  for its plan to move production from Oshawa, Ontario to GM's Lansing Grand River facility.

UAW 652 President Mike Green--who represents over 2,000 hourly GM workers in Lansing is excited about the move.
"I'd like to welcome the American 'Muscle Car' back to the U.S.," he says.     

A GM spokesperson says the Canadian plant will continue to make several models, but added it can't speculate on the long-term jobs impact at Oshawa. 

A Canadian Auto Workers union statement says the decision shows "complete and utter disregard" for the Canadians.
