FCA Windsor Assembly Celebrates 10 Years of Digging In

Windsor – On Sunday, October 1st, FCA Canada’s Joint Workplace Environment Committee (JWEC) will team up with the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) and the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup (DRCC) to create more meadow habitat in Windsor. Over the past 10 years, Unifor Local 444 and FCA Canada management staff from the Windsor Assembly Plant have planted over 1000 native trees, shrubs, grasses and wildflowers at various sites around the facility for butterflies and other wildlife. With funding support of over $60,000 from the DRCC, planting expertise provided by ERCA, and the muscle of the Windsor Assembly employees, this decade long partnership has contributed significantly to restoration efforts within the Detroit River watershed.

“We at Windsor Assembly take very seriously our local environment,” says Dan Mustac, FCA Windsor Assembly Plant Environment Pillar Lead. “Plantings such as these help maintain and expand the local biodiversity and ensure the beautiful Windsor-Essex flora and fauna are here for future generations to enjoy.”  FCA Canada is committed to greening the community, and this 10th anniversary planting represents one more step in this endeavor. The JWEC, ERCA and the DRCC are pleased to partner in this ongoing effort. 

The Detroit River Canadian Cleanup implements the Remedial Action Plan on behalf of a community-based partnership between the government (federal, provincial, municipal), local industries, researchers, environmental organizations, and citizens working together to protect, restore, and enhance the Detroit River ecosystem.

For more than four decades, Essex Region Conservation has been sustaining and enriching the environment of the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island region to ensure it is the Place for Life.

For over 20 years the Joint Workplace Environment Committee has been engaging Windsor Assembly Employees about the Environment and its importance to us all.
