    Chrysler, UAW face a slew of complaints - BY TIM HIGGINS, Detroit Free Press / First of two parts
    In the past four years, nine federal lawsuits have been filed in Toledo against Chrysler regarding sexual harassment at the Jeep plant. Seventy-three charges of civil rights violations have been filed with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, with more than 40 coming within the past 18 months, records show.

    The 45 civil rights complaints in the last 18 months is more than five times the number of charges leveled against General Motors Corp.'s comparably sized operations in and around Toledo.

    Some of the Jeep plant cases highlight Chrysler's requirement that job applicants waive the full amount of time they have under the law to file a legal claim, a provision allowed by the courts that one Michigan judge has called 'unconscionable.'
