NO USE LORDSTOWN, OHIO MEDIA MARKETS** ~ SOUNDBITE: CANADIAN GENERAL MOTORS WORKER (DATE: NOVEMBER 26, 2018) ENGLISH, SAYING: "I've been here 28 years.

I've been through a closure in Scarboro.

I've been through a closure in London.

I moved my family twice for this company.

And they do this to me." This was the reaction back in November when General Motors announced plans to close five plants throughout North America, resulting in 15,000 job cuts.

But there's some relief Wednesday on factory floors on word GM is in separate discussions to keep a General Motors manufacturing plant in Canada and another in Lordstown, Ohio from shutting down.

Ohio governor Mike DeWine praised the talks, but was also cautious: SOUNDBITE: OHIO GOVERNOR MIKE DEWINE (ENGLISH) SAYING: "If things are not in place for this to happen this would be very cruel for the workers and the people in Lordstown." No such caution from President Trump - Who was happy to announce on Twitter the Lordstown plant will be sold to an obscure company called Workhorse Group to build electric trucks, calling it "Great news for Ohio!" GM didn't go that far, saying the deal is still in the discussion phase.

And the United Auto Workers has to sign on.

Trump had blasted GM and CEO Mary Barra for the planned layoffs, reminding GM of the government bailout that saved the company when it went bankrupt during the financial crisis.

As part of Wednesday's announcement, GM says it will spend $700 million to create jobs in three other Ohio facilities.

North of the border, GM and the largest union representing Canadian auto workers say they reached an agreement that would partly rescue an Ontario factory.

That location will go from an auto-making plant to a parts-making facility, saving 300 jobs.
