FCA extends third shift elimination 'until further notice'
The Windsor Assembly Plant will close between Nov. 4 and Nov. 11
The elimination of the third shift at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) Windsor Assembly Plant has been "extended until further notice," according to FCA Canada's head of communications.
LouAnn Gosselin was clear that the third shift hasn't been permanently reinstated.
The plant is also scheduled to temporarily shut down on Nov. 4, due to an internal capacity constraint.
Gosselin said "normal production schedules are expected to resume the week of Nov. 11."
FCA Canada announced in March that it planned to terminate the third shift at the Windsor Assembly Plant by the end of September 2019.
That date was later extended to Oct. 21, 2019, followed by another extension to the end of 2019.
Approximately 1,500 FCA Canada employees are expected to lose their jobs once the Windsor Assembly Plant's third shift is formally eliminated.
- A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that the elimination of the third shift had been delayed beyond 2019. Instead, FCA Canada said the third shift's elimination has been extended until further notice. This story has been corrected to represent these facts.Oct 25, 2019 8:45 PM ET
