Chrysler jobs bank ends Monday

The controversial jobs bank — a program that allowed UAW workers to receive pay while not working — ends Monday at Chrysler, the union has told its members.

Chrysler told employees in a letter Friday that workers now in the jobs bank would be placed on “enhanced layoff,” effective Monday, until a final agreement has been reached with the UAW.
