A labor strike in Canada may cause automaker Chrysler LLC to temporarily increase minivan production at its plant in Fenton, a spokeswoman for the company said Monday.
Canadian workers for TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. went on strike Thursday, which halted production Thursday night at Chrysler's minivan plant in Windsor, Ontario. TRW supplies suspension systems for the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.
Production at Chrysler's minivan plant in Fenton has been unaffected, as it is supplied by a local TRW facility.
As the strike entered its fifth day Monday, Chrysler is studying the possibility of replacing lost production of the Dodge Grand Caravan by increasing production at its plant in Fenton, said Michele Tinson, Chrysler spokeswoman.
