The Japanese automakers have a little-noticed weapon in their competitive arsenal: employees who arrive ready to work every day, day in and day out. Chrysler Group plans to achieve the same weapon. The labor agreement between the Chrysler Group and the UAW calls for a crackdown on absenteeism in manufacturing plants. Workers who are no-shows raise costs, undermine productivity and threaten quality, the company says. The proposed agreement between the Chrysler group and the UAW spells out stricter absenteeism penalties. INSET: AWOL.
