Workers at DaimlerChrysler Corp.’s Toledo, OH, assembly plant have voted to strike unless a new contract between workers and the auto maker is reached before Sept. 14. United Auto Workers Local 12 members are asking for DC to build a new vehicle at its Toledo North plant and increase staffing levels there. Workers complained last year that some of them were working 60-hour-weeks while others were on indefinite layoff. DC resolved the latter issue by recalling some of the idled workers.
