Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has lost another worker to COVID-19, the UAW said Thursday.
The death of a man employed at FCA Transport in Sterling Heights, Mich., marks the fourth of an FCA union worker linked to the new coronavirus.
“As this crisis continues, each day we get news of another brother or sister who has fallen to this terrible virus,” UAW President Rory Gamble said in a statement.
One of the employees worked at FCA’s Ram pickup factory in Sterling Heights, Mich. Another was employed at a plant in Kokomo, Ind. In addition, a worker at FCA’s Warren Truck Assembly Plant near Detroit died Wednesday. The UAW has attributed all of the deaths to the virus in several public statements by Gamble.
The automaker on Sunday said it was postponing work associated with test laboratories and pilot plants at its Auburn Hills, Mich., headquarters after a non-union technical support worker there died following a positive test, two Detroit newspapers reported.
