DETROIT -- Chrysler LLC plans to shut down the entire company for two weeks this summer as a cost saving move to "accelerate Chrysler's recovery and transformation," Chief Executive Robert Nardelli told employees in a memo distributed Thursday.

Mr. Nardelli told employees they will have to take vacation for the weeks of July 7 and July 14 "in order to create better alignment and efficiency across organizational lines and boost productivity," according to the memo, which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Chrysler clarifies vacation mandate

March 15, 2008


Development on products excepted

Chrysler LLC employees with time-sensitive jobs developing new vehicles or working with the company's dealers and customers will not be part of the company-wide two-week shutdown in July, the automaker's top executives said Friday.

"If we shut down a factory, we should have its management team off when the factory is closed, not on vacation when we need them," he said.
