Question Oshawa days/hours schedule

Just curious, but was wondering if anyone knows how long the production line runs in Oshawa? Their production has been fantastic, as evidenced by the fact that they will probably produce the 100,000th Camaro this week or next. But does anyone know if the line runs Mon-Fri 8-5, Is there more than 1 shift working? Are they also working Saturdays? Probably a dumb question, but I was just curious....Thanks for indulging me

probably mon-fri from 6am to 2:30, 3:30 or 4:30 pm depending on how many hours a day they work and saturdays 6am to 3:30 since the saturdays should only be 8 or 9 hours and they only have 1 shift

correct normal is 5 days a week at 8 hours if they run "OT" it becomes 9 hours a day and 8 hours on every other saturday, if they get 10 hours a day its 9 hours on every other saturdays like we are running here at the Large SUV Plant

Oshawa runs a 1 shift operation for the Camaro , 6:30am-2:20pm . Yes we also do OT on Saturdays. The Impala plant is a 2 shift operation , same hours on day shift as ours and 2:30pm-10:30pm on the afternoon shift. Hope this helps.
