WINDSOR, Ont.: A Chrysler assembly plant in Windsor, Ont., is resuming production after a temporary stoppage due to a strike at a parts supplier.

Workers were back to work for the afternoon shift after the day shift was cancelled for all except skilled trades.

Unionized workers at the Dakkota Integrated Systems plant in nearby Tecumseh walked off the job Monday morning after rejecting a three-year tentative agreement.

Dakkota supplies the instrument panels on all Chrysler Minivans.

After 75% out in favour of an improved contract in a second vote, the Dakkota workers returned to the parts plant.

Chrysler’s Windsor plant makes the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town and Country and the Volkswagen Routan.
