Supplier Strike Shuts Down Chrysler’s Windsor Assembly Plant

WINDSOR (WWJ) – Production of the minivan at Chrysler’s Windsor Assembly Plant has come to a halt.

“Effective immediately, production at Windsor Assembly Plant has been temporarily suspended, due to a lack of supply components,” Chrysler Canada spokeswoman Lou-Ann Gosselin told WWJ Newsradio 950.

A strike by workers at one of the plant’s key suppliers is behind the shutdown. 200 workers at Dakkota Integrated Systems in Ontario walked off the job at midnight after rejecting a new contract over the weekend. Lansing-based Dakkota makes instrument panels for minivans at Windsor Assembly.

Only skilled trades workers should report to work. A decision on the second shift will be made later this morning.
