Workers at automatic transmission manufacturer DSI will be stood down for seven days while production at the Albury assembly plant stops due to a component supply issue.
The AMWU understands all production is stopping due to quality problems with a component imported from the United States.
DSI is taking a number of measures to reduce the impact on workers, including bringing forward annual leave and banked RDOs.
The stand-down affects 250 workers and will take place over the next fortnight - three days starting tomorrow and the four days next week before Easter.
“This is a temporary stop in production and we are confident it will be resolved,” said AMWU NSW Vehicle Division Secretary Sean Morgan.
“DSI has secure contracts in place, exporting high-quality automatic transmissions. It is an important employer in Albury and we’ll be doing everything we can ensure DSI’s successful future here.”
