The Chrysler minivan plant in Windsor, Ontario has reopened and the workers on two shifts are back on the job. The third shift returns in July.
The plant has been closed for two months but now; all 3,500 workers are back or will be returning soon. Today, the day and afternoon shifts returned to work and the third shift is scheduled to return July 27.
CAW Local 444 president Rick Laporte says it's a "fresh start" at Chrysler and a relief to have the plant running again.
The plant will close for the summer vacation period the weeks of July 13 and July 20.
On May 4, shortly after filing for bankruptcy protection on April 30, Chrysler shut the plant down..
Chrysler, apparently, has plans to resume making vehicles at its Brampton, Ont., plant and five U.S. factories by the end of this month.
