TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian Auto Workers union demanded in a press release on Tuesday that General Motors GM.N retain at least one shift at its Oshawa, Ontario, truck assembly plant.

GM said on Tuesday it wants to end production at the plant after the third quarter of 2009.

CAW head Buzz Hargrove called on the Canadian and Ontario governments to help retain at least one shift beyond September 2009. The company agreed in a recent collective bargaining to keep two shifts at the truck plant until at least September 2009.
