General Motors of Canada will add a third shift at its Oshawa, Ont., Canada, plant to increase production of the fast-selling Chevrolet Impala sedan. GM Canada and Canadian union officials expect the third shift to add 1,000 jobs. The plant is currently running on maximum overtime for the Impala and Chevrolet Monte Carlo, but still is not able to meet demand. Impala sales are up 19% in the U.S. and 24% in Canada this year.
