On April 17, Unifor Local 444 officials reported that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has committed to invest CAD 355 million over the next year into its Windsor Assembly Plant in Canada plant during a meeting convened regarding the company’s previous announcement that it will eliminate the third shift in September.
The company’s investment does not guarantee anything regarding the 1,500 jobs that remain in jeopardy.
The Windsor plant assembles Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.
The company made the commitment to "further enhance FCA’s long term commitment to our facility," according to the union post, and further discussions will continue about the Windsor plant as well as its plant in Brampton, also in Ontario.
Demand for the Chrysler Pacifica has been softening as U.S. sales dropped 29% in the first quarter of 2019.
The Windsor plant went from two shifts to three shifts in 1993, according to the union.
