St. Louis – Some workers at Chrysler's minivan plant in suburban St. Louis will lose their jobs earlier than expected.

The second shift at the Fenton South plant will be cut on December 31st.

Chrysler had previously said it would cut the second shift in the spring of 2008.

The automaker announced plans Thursday to cut an additional 12,000 jobs nationwide. That's on top of the 13,000 job cuts it announced in February.

As part of that first round of cuts, Chrysler will eliminate more than 1,900 jobs at its two plants in Fenton through 2009.
