TOLEDO, Ohio -- Union officials say Chrysler will shut down production of the Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro for two months at its Toledo assembly plant.

United Auto Workers officials say slow sales forced the move.

Workers were told Thursday that Chrysler plans to halt Liberty and Nitro production

About 2,200 people work at the assembly plant. Officials with UAW Local 12 say workers will get most of the summer off and won't be called back until at least August 25.

Chrysler spokesman Ed Saenz won't confirm the shutdown.

The UAW says Jeep's Wrangler plant in Toledo will continue production except for a scheduled shutdown during the week of July 14.
