FCA confirmed that its UAW represented workforce has ratified a new four-year collective bargaining agreement that builds on the Company’s commitment to grow its US manufacturing operations by providing for total investments of USD 9 billion and the creation of 7,900 new or secured jobs. The Company is doubling up on the USD 4.5 billion investment it previously announced in February 2019, which included investments in five existing Michigan facilities and the construction of a new state-of-the-art, sustainable assembly plant in Detroit. These investments will support the production of two new Jeep brand vehicles and the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as electrified models. In total, the company will add nearly 6,500 new jobs at these facilities, including 5,000 in the city of Detroit.

The additional USD 4.5 billion will support upgrades to products or processes across FCA’s US manufacturing footprint in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, increasing employment by another 1,400 jobs.

The new collective bargaining agreement covers more than 47,000 UAW-represented employees at 22 FCA manufacturing facilities, as well as 17 Mopar Parts Distribution Centers across the country.
