Chrysler workers protest layoffs

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Several hundred manufacturing workers gathered across the street from Chrysler LLC headquarters here yesterday to protest layoffs in St. Louis.

The company announced June 30 that it plans to close the minivan plant in St. Louis effective Oct. 31 and remove a shift from a nearby truck plant. About 2,500 jobs will be affected.

Chrysler says the cuts are necessary because of the decline in U.S. minivan and truck sales. Workers say Chrysler should keep jobs in the United States instead of keeping minivan and truck plants open in Canada and Mexico.
