DETROIT, June 6 (Reuters) - General Motors Corp ( said on Friday it was in very early discussions with the Canadian Auto Workers union about adding another model to its car plant in Oshawa, Ontario, after deciding to close a nearby truck plant.

The discussions about a potential third car for the Oshawa car production line, earmarked to make the Chevrolet Camaro and a still unnamed second car, began this week after GM announced it was closing its truck plant in Oshawa, said Stew Low, a spokesman for GM Canada.

The CAW has protested GM's decision to close the Oshawa truck plant in 2009, saying it violates a just-ratified labor contract. CAW President Buzz Hargrove and GM Chief Executive Rick Wagoner met on Friday at GM's headquarters in Detroit. (Reporting by Soyoung Kim and Kevin Krolicki; editing by John Wallace)

Seriously, WTF can a union do if plants need to be closed because the product produced at that plant isn't selling. F'n unions piss me the hell off.

I'm pretty sure that the Volt is already green-lighted for production at the Lordstown plant along side the Chevy Cobalt, the Pontiac G5, and the new compact car (with the Turbo 1.4L 4-cyl).

Of the "Chevrolet Triplets" the Beat is the only one that is greenlighted for production. I would assume that either the sub-compact chassis (Chevy Aveo, Pontiac G3) or the compact Delta chassis (Chevy Cobalt, Pontiac G5, Chevy Volt) would be used for that car.

So I have no educated guess at what this car will be, unless they will keep building large front-wheel drive cars on the W chassis, and add a car to that chassis.
