It was temp dependent and only did it half as much, but it was still there. I think they just used spray lube and didn't actually take it apart and grease the pivots. This is something I figured I could fix myself, but I didn't want to fiddle with it because it has a warranty so I took it back to the dealer. They ordered a complete new pedal assembly and installed it. I thought that was a little overkill, but it worked. The mechanic said although this is the first lx manual trans he has had to work on, he said it appeared that the upper bushing was never greased from the factory, he said the new assembly was greased. I have put about 3000 more miles on it now, not one squeak!, it really makes the driving experience more pleasant! Keep up with your dealer, it may be possible there was a run of pedal pivots that left without grease.
Per your advice and post, my dealer replaced the pedal assembly. It's squeaking worse than ever!!. The dealer is supposed to check with Chrysler to see what can be done to resolve the issue. I don't have high hopes of them fixing anything. Although I really enjoy my RT, with the issues I have had and the service morons I have run into at Dodge, this will be my last Chrysler/Dodge product.

[sigh] This worries me a little bit. And a squeaky clutch pedal drives me crazy. Sorry you're having this problem.

Sorry to hear.

I have 12000 miles on this "new" pedal, not one squeak since it was replaced. I sympathize with you as I remember how annoying it was when noisy. Hopefully they can figure something out.

That doesn't make any sense. The slave cylinder is down by your transmission, under the floorboards. The master cylinder is behind your firewall. You're more likely to hear noise coming from your master rather than your slave cylinder.
