Trade workers prepare to take over Windsor Assembly Plant for retooling
About 1800 trade workers are getting ready to begin construction work to retool the Windsor Assembly Plant.
The workers are in a training session today as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles prepares to retool for the next generation minivan. Chrysler is investing $2 billion in the project.
Electricians will make up most jobs – about 500 to 600 - but they will be joined by plumbers, carpenters, ironworkers, millwrights and others.
The work is expected to start at 8 p.m. Friday night.
The plant is scheduled to be shut down until May 25.
