By Staff Writer March 27, 2020 316

Two more FCA workers died of the novel CoVid-19 virus on thursday. UAW president Rory Gamble released the news late thursday. One of the employees worked at FCA transport in Sterling Heights MI and one was a tech support worker in Aubern Hills MI. Tragically this brings the total to five. Four of the five FCA employees were UAW members.

This follows the death of an FCA employee who worked at their Warren Truck assembly plant in Mi who passed away on Wednesday from CoVid-19 and two other FCA plant workers one from the  Kokomo, IN, facility and one from its Sterling Heights, MI plant that died on Tuesday. Earlier in the week a statement released by UAW president Rory Gamble said "two of our members, one at FCA Kokomo, IN, and one at FCA Sterling Heights, MI, have lost their lives to this virus"

Gamble also said in the statement that at least one employee tested positive for the virus at FCA's parts-distribution center in Center Line, Mi. The center has been shuttered.
