Chrysler will hire 400-500 new workers to help build the upcoming Dodge Dart compacts at its Illinois plant. The workers will be added to the plant’s current shifts.
The positions will be part-time hourly jobs or full-time temporary positions. We imagine the UAW will have something to say about the use of temp workers. The union has yet to comment on the matter, but Chrysler also said a third shift may be added. The plant also builds the Jeep Compass and Patroit and will produce their replacement, which should bow in 2013.
