Scarborough Van Plant Reunion: Sunday, May 1
April 6, 2011, 2:15 PM EST
The second annual Scarborough Van Plant Reunion will be held Sunday, May 1 in Oshawa, Ontario.
The reunion will run from 1 pm to 6 pm at the Moose Lodge, 731 Wilson Road South, in Oshawa. It's a free event for van plant retirees.
Last year more than 300 attended the reunion and organizers are hoping to make this year's event more successful. CAW Local 303 van plant retirees, former salaried employees, TRS, CNR, truckers and others are welcome to attend.
The Scarborough van plant produced GM vans. In May of 1993 the plant, which at one point employed 2,800 workers, was closed. Many of the workers transferred to GM's car and truck assembly plants in Oshawa.
