FCA Transport Update

The ATS car haulers are separate from the roughly 300 Fiat-Chrysler Auto Transport workers who were informed in 2017 by FCA of its intention to wind down the Windsor transport operations.

The FCAT unit is responsible for parts transportation.

Despite the announcement to cease ground transport operations nearly two years ago, activity remains status quo.

Unifor Local 444 president Dave Cassidy says a resolution is expected to be found during 2020 contract negotiations.
