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.

Members of CAW Local 444 and TRW Automotive have reached a tentative agreement to end a six-day-old strike which idled Chrysler's Windsor Assembly Plant and cancelled shifts at eight other parts plants across the city.

Representatives for both the union and the company started meeting at 7 a.m. this morning and a tentative deal was reached shortly after noon.

The negotiations came a day after discussions between TRW and Chrysler took place, according to a CAW spokesman
