The UAW and Chrysler have developed a program to connect employees in need with resources that can help in a confidential manner. It’s called the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The primary purpose of the program is to assist employees who have such problems and help them deal effectively with these situations. It also encourage employees to obtain information about the dangers of substance abuse and other addictions, as well as serious family and personal problems.
All active employees and their family members are eligible for this benefit. Your Employee Assistance Representative can assist you in taking those first steps. If you are not sure who your EAP rep is, just click on the EAP Representatives List link.
Remember, the Employee Assistance Program is free, confidential, and has helped a lot of people.
Employees who elect not to contact the EAP Rep may contact the Chrysler National Hotline Managed Care Coordinator at 800.346.7651 (for represented employees) or 800.447.0166 (for non-represented employees)
