the shut down will be the week of June 20. Only one week for Wrangler and two weeks for the Liberty and Nitro side.

I heard that our skilled trades from TAC are working Weekends at the new paint shop. I hope you guys treat them with some kind of respect, and not give them the cold sholder.

Dear Holly,
We wanted to make sure that you were aware of this great event the We Are Ohio Campaign to Repeal Senate Bill 5 is holding this Saturday, June 11. Read the email below from the We Are Ohio Campaign Director AJ Stokes, and send an email to Toni Webb at [email protected] if you have any questions about the event.
The AFSCME Ohio Team
----------
Dear Supporter,
Everyone is doing their part to fight Senate Bill 5, the unfair attack on employee rights and worker safety.
This Saturday, from noon to 5 p.m., bikers from across the state will bring the thunder and roar into Columbus for a rally and then a ride encircling the Statehouse. The rally will be at the corner of 226 S. Front St. in Columbus at the corner of Front and Rich streets.
Motorcycle clubs, first responders and independent riders are all coming to demonstrate their opposition to the job-killing, community-destroying Senate Bill 5.
The first 250 riders to arrive in Columbus will receive a free Commemorative Patch, as seen on the event flyer. Click here to see the event flyer and print one off today.
There will be three live bands, food and beverages for sale so bring the entire family and cheer on the bikers. RSVP for the event on Facebook and invite others to the event by clicking here.
At 1 p.m., the bikers will circle the Capitol to show their solidarity against Senate Bill 5, the law supported by extreme politicians that will devastate working and middle class communities all across Ohio.
We Are Ohio is a bipartisan, citizen-driven coalition that has more than 10,000 volunteers collecting signatures in the peopleís petition drive to give voters a chance to exercise their citizenís veto this November and repeal Senate Bill 5.
If you have yet to sign a petition, go to www.weareohio.com for information on locations in your community. You can also volunteer at the We Are Ohio site.
For those hard working Ohioans who have helped to circulate petitions or signed, We Are Ohio thanks you.
We are just weeks away from turning in our petitions and we need everyone to push extra hard in these final weeks to ensure we defeat this job-killing bill that will lead to fewer police officers patrolling your community, fewer firefighters responding to emergencies in your neighborhood, fewer teachers in your childís classrooms and fewer newer nurses taking care of our children and elderly.
Thank you for all that you do,
AJ Stokes
Campaign Director
We Are Ohio

We were told we would be working 10 hours with 2 Sat. on 1 off for the rest of the year. Liberty side is doing the same. Wrangler orders are the best in years and we can not keep up! Not much else was said at the union meeting on Fri. We will know more about new product by the third week of Sept. Straight from the Chairman's mouth. Probably after we sign the new contract.

Chrysler has confirmed that the Nitro, Dodgeís only five-seat SUV, will be canceled in December. The automaker will continue producing Nitros this fall, but the SUVs will be considered 2011 models and not 2012s like the related Jeep Liberty that rolls down the same Toledo, Ohio, assembly line.

For the rest of the model year, Dodge is scrapping the Detonator and Shock models and replacing them with what will wind up being a short-lived Nitro R/T. Despite the resurgence of the historic R/T moniker, the special model will essentially mirror its predecessors with a 260-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 and a sport-oriented suspension.

Just what the future holds for Dodgeís SUV lineup is unknown.

The automakerís Journey crossover was refreshed for 2011 and has seen its price ratchet downward for 2012, while the larger Durango was also all-new for 2012. Itís unclear if Dodge plans to bridge the gap between sub-$20,000 Journey and $29,000 Durango, or if the automaker will leave that up to the five-seat $27,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
