A car plant that General Motors Co. has operated for 65 years in Canada could be on the verge of shutting down as part of what a union says will be a global overhaul of the automaker’s operations.

The company will announce Monday that it’s ending production at its plant in Oshawa, Ontario, two people familiar with the plans said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Unifor, Canada’s autoworkers’ union, said it’s been told there is no car production assigned to the factory beyond next year, though it raised the prospect of talks to preserve jobs.
