The Windsor Assembly Plant is cutting the third shift.

In an emailed statement the company says “In order to better align production with global demand at its Windsor Assembly Plant, FCA notified Unifor today that it intends to return the plant to a traditional two-shift operation, beginning September 30th, 2019.”

The change will affect approximately 1,500 people and retirement packages will be offered to eligible employees.

“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,” the statement read.

Workers at the plant are represented by Unifor Local 444.

“I was shocked and very disappointed that FCA has announced today the elimination of the third shift at Windsor Assembly Plant,” said Local 444 President Dave Cassidy.

“Our members at the Windsor Assembly Plant with the support of our Feeder Plants continue to build the very best product throughout the FCA corporation. We will continue to meet with the company on alternatives of new products. We will need the support of all levels of government as we move forward.”
