Chrysler Will Pay Rest of $3,500 UAW Ratification Bonuses Early

Chrysler Group LLC, the automaker majority owned by Fiat SpA, will pay the remainder of $3,500-per-worker bonuses that are due to hourly employees early, according to a statement today.

Chrysler will make payments of $1,750 each to its roughly 26,200 employees represented by the United Auto Workers on Dec. 21, the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company said. The first half of the bonuses was paid after Chrysler and the Detroit-based union agreed to a national contract in October 2011.
