Chrysler announced today that it has completed the investigation of the Jefferson North employees recently suspended due to inappropriate conduct during their lunch period.
As a result, 13 employees engaged in behavior that violated the Company's Standards of Conduct and they were discharged today… only two remaining employees will receive a one month disciplinary layoff without pay.
This is clear evidence that Chrysler is not prepared to tolerate such behavior. The manufacturer also said in a statement that it will continue to “evaluate its protocols to ensure that something like this does not happen again”.
Furthermore, Chrysler assured its customers that it has implemented a comprehensive quality system for all of the vehicles it builds. Chrysler also said that the new Grand Cherokee proves to be the best launch in the history of Chrysler for vehicle reliability.
"It is unfortunate that the actions of a few people have called into question the reputation of more than 51,000 very proud, hard-working Chrysler Group employees, grateful that the American and Canadian taxpayers gave us a second chance. We take that responsibility very seriously and will work to restore the public's faith." stated the press release.
