Chrysler pauses plant in Toledo

News services

Chrysler LLC is shutting down production of the Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro for two months at its Toledo assembly plant.

United Auto Workers officials say slow sales forced the move.

Workers were told Thursday that Chrysler plans to halt Liberty and Nitro production following a shutdown already scheduled for July 4.

About 2,200 people work at the assembly plant. UAW Local 12 officials say workers will get most of the summer off and won’t be called back until at least Aug. 25.
