FCA to end third shift at Windsor Plant, affecting 1,500 workers

Fiat Chrysler to cut 1,500

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is cutting the third shift at its Windsor Assembly Plant beginning June 29.

The automaker says it notified Unifor Thursday about the change that will affect about 1,500 employees.

The move extends the third shift for three months. Originally scheduled to shut down last September, the shift's closing was given a four-month reprieve in November to last until March 31.

FCA says it made the decision to match volumes with demand as production of the Dodge Grand Caravan is phased out at the end of May.

The company says it will try to place indefinitely laid off hourly employees in full-time positions as they become available based on seniority.

Eligible employees will also be offered retirement packages.
