TORONTO Chrysler Group
LLCs minivan assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario, resumed
operations Monday afternoon following an earlier shutdown
caused by a labor disruption at a supplier companys
facility, a Chrysler spokeswoman told AMM.
Workers at Dakkota Integrated
Systems accepted on Monday a three-year labor agreement during
a revote, according to an update on the website of Canadian
Auto Workers union Local 444, bringing the companys brief
strike to an end.
"Afternoon shifts are to report
to work today; production will resume," the union said on
the site. Dakkota supplies instrument panels for Chrysler
minivans, AMM understands.
A spokeswoman for Chrysler
confirmed Monday that the company had temporarily shut down
operations at the plant due to a strike at the parts supplier
but that it was back online by Monday afternoon.
"Our first today shift was
canceled; thats it. (The) afternoon shift reported," the
Chrysler spokeswoman said.
"These are not our
negotiations," she added, noting that Chrysler had been
handling the impact from the strike on a "shift by shift"
The Windsor facility makes the Chrysler Town & Country,
Dodge Grand Caravan, Ram Cargo Van, Lancia Grand Voyager and
Volkswagen Routan, according to Chryslers website.
