FCA Canada is eliminating a third shift at its automotive plant in Windsor, Ont., impacting 1,500 jobs.
The company said it’s cutting back to two shifts at the plant starting on Sept. 30.
“The Company will make every effort to place indefinitely laid off hourly employees in open full-time positions as they become available based on seniority,” Fiat Chrysler said in a statement.
The plant employs 6,104 workers, according to the FCA website.
Unifor Local 444 is holding a news conference later today to discuss the restructuring.
