Chrysler, UAW start child care.

Chrysler, UAW start child care

The automobile industry's first jointly operated onsite child care center will be built at Chrysler Motors Corp. Electronics Division plant in Huntsville, AL. The program will be operated by the UAW-Chrysler National Training Center through a contract with a professional child care company. The cost to participating employees has not yet been determined. The center will have an initial capacity of 100 to 200 children, and will care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. It will operate from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m., Monday through Friday.

The electronics plant was selected for the pilot project because its 3,400 employees are predominantly young and are from a large geographic area around the plant, and because existing child care facilities in the area were deemed to be inadequate.

Earlier in 1989, Chrysler began child care referral programs at its car assembly plant in Sterling Heights, MI, and at its Dodge truck assembly plant in Warren, MI.
