Chrysler delays restart of Liberty, Nitro work

Hourly and skilled trades workers at Chrysler Group LLC’s idled Toledo factory that makes Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro vehicles will not head back to work this morning as planned, but will instead report back to work July 27, union officials said.

Chrysler had intended to recall laid-off workers at the plant for three days of “prep work” before resuming production, Chrysler spokesman Max Gates said. Workers at that factory have been idled since Chrysler sought bankruptcy protection on April 30.

When workers return, Mr. Gates, said they will continue making 2009 model year vehicles “for a short time” before switching over to 2010 models.

Workers have already returned at the next-door factories that make Jeep Wranglers at Toledo Jeep Assembly complex. --
