Fiat Chrysler Canada is eliminating about 300 jobs from its FCA Transport division in Windsor, Ontario, the automaker said in a statement Friday.
FCA Transport handles parts transportation at the Windsor Assembly Plant, where the Pacifica and Grand Caravan minivans are built.
Spokeswoman Lou Ann Gosselin said the work of 288 hourly employees and seven salaried staff members will now be outsourced.
Retirement packages will be offered to all eligible employees at the Windsor Assembly Plant, including FCA Transport.
Those employees who elect not to take the package or are not eligible to retire will be offered positions at the Windsor Assembly Plant.
FCA did not say why it chose to eliminate the transport jobs.
Calls to Unifor Local 444, which represents the transport employees, were not immediately returned.
