Strike against TRW forces Chrysler plant to idle
CHICAGO/DETROIT (Reuters) - The Canadian Auto Workers called a strike on Thursday at a TRW Automotive Holdings Corp (TRW.N: Quote) plant in Windsor, Ontario, forcing the idling of a nearby Chrysler LLC plant that assembles the automaker's top-selling minivans.
Chrysler idled its Windsor Assembly plant at about 6 p.m. EST on Thursday and canceled overnight and Friday morning shifts at the plant employing about 4,400 hourly workers.
The Windsor Assembly Plant makes the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Caravan, a pair of redesigned minivans that Chrysler needs to hold their own in a slumping auto market as it revamps its vehicle lineup and restructures its operations.
