Chrysler ends vacation rule

Chrysler has ended a cost-saving requirement that all workers take the same two weeks off during the summer, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.

For the past two years, cash-starved Chrysler shut all of its operations during the same two weeks in July that it closed U.S. and Canadian factories as it switched from one model year to the next.

Now, with sales rising and Chrysler reporting a $143-million first-quarter operating profit, the company is allowing its 10,000 U.S. salaried employees to work from July 12 through 23 and take time off during other months, spokeswoman Shawn Morgan said. Factories will be shut during those weeks, she said.

The staggered vacations will allow Chrysler to continue work on updating its vehicles, she said.
