UAW and Chrysler switch it up at pair of engine plants
The whole point of the new agreement is to make the plant more attractive to Chrysler, which could send new projects into the plant if a good business case is present. A similar agreement was also approved at Chrysler's Kenosha, WI plant and may be voted on at the Mack II engine plant in Detroit.
While some union members are decrying the destruction of organized labor from within, we've already reported on a few success stories at Chrysler's Toledo Jeep operations where local unions have broken ranks with the national body in order to lower costs, boost production and ultimately preserve their jobs.
