THE COMPANY summoned its first
shift of 2,625 workers to report to work
at 6:30 a.m. today. The effectiveness of
the dissidents' picket line will be tested
when the bulk of the work force ap-

The plant was the third hit by an un-
authorized work stoppage in three reeks.
United Auto Workers (UAW) local and
international officers joined Chrysler in
asking the workers to return to their jobs.

from the picketing at the plant.

TWO CHRYSLER WORKERS walk alone through the company's huge Mack Ave. plant in Detroit Tuesday after they and
some 40 others took over part of the plant and shut down operations for nearly two full days. Police and security guards
