Earlier this week, FCA Canada announced that the Brampton Fiat Chrysler Assembly plant will temporarily shut down for two weeks this spring. According to Detroit News, FCA said it would idle its plants in Windsor and Brampton for the first two weeks of April “to align production with demand.”
After that announcement, FCA announced that it would be eliminating Windsor Assembly Plant jobs.
The union representing the affected workers has expressed outrage at the news.
“I’m deeply concerned about the 1,500 workers and additional workers in the parts supply chain that will be impacted by FCA’s intention to cut the third shift in Windsor,” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias in a statement.
