Jeep plant in Detroit due to lack of core

Stellantis, the world’s fourth largest auto company, which is formed by the merger of Fiat Chrysler (15.23, 0.00, 0.00%) and Peugeot Citroen, announced that it plans to lay off temporary staff at a jeep factory in Detroit this month and next month due to global chip shortage.

The company said it would lay off employees on two shifts for three weeks from April 26, then recall them, and lay off employees on the third shift for two weeks from May 17 to May 31. The plant usually operates in three shifts, 20 hours a day, six days a week.

 

The jnap plant, with about 4800 hourly workers, makes last year’s best-selling Jeep Grand Cherokee and dodge Durango SUVs.
