UAW predicts total of 1,400 new Jeep jobs
 
Chrysler Group LLC could create up to 300 more jobs than the automaker announced when it unveiled plans for a second shift at the plant that now makes Jeep Libertys, union officials said.
The final count probably is still more than a week away, but Dan Henneman, Jeep unit chairman for UAW Local 12, said it should be good news for Toledo.
"We could be looking at up to 1,400 jobs," Mr. Henneman said.
When Sergio Marchionne, the chief executive officer of Chrysler and its parent company Fiat SpA, visited Toledo last November to officially announce Chrysler's plan to put $500 million into the Toledo Assembly complex, he said the second shift would bring about 1,100 new jobs to the city.
Mr. Henneman said nothing has changed within Chrysler's plans, but the automaker's announcement of 1,100 wasn't based on actual modeling of job stations.
That's being done now. Mr. Henneman said employment needs are determined by a "digital scroll," which is essentially a simulation of a vehicle moving down the line.
"You determine how many jobs you'll have based on how many cars you'll run an hour," he said.
