By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown.
Ford Motor Company announced Wednesday, November 28, that the automaker will be cutting shifts at two locations. Ford will be cutting a shift at its Louisville Assembly Plant and at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant here in Michigan. However, Ford states that it will be moving some workers to other plants, but will not cut any jobs. According to the Automaker the company will be shifting around 500 workers from the Louisville Assembly plant to its Kentucky Truck Plant, which are both located in Kentucky.
Ford stated also that 500 jobs will be moved from the Flat Rock Assembly Plant here in Michigan to its Livonia Transmissions plant which is also in Michigan. Below is a November 28 statement from Michigan Congresswoman Debbie Dingell.
Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) made the following statement after Ford announcement about jobs:
“Ford’s announcement today continues to be a warning about the strength of the auto industry in this country. We all must pay attention to what this means for workers, the industry, and the whole economy. While I am deeply disturbed at the elimination of a shift in my district, I appreciate Ford’s concern for their employees and their commitment to keeping jobs in the US. Democrats and Republicans must continue to work together to ensure we have a strong, healthy economy that supports workers, provides good-paying jobs, levels the playing field with strong consistent trade policies, and keeps our country as the world leader in transforming mobility.”
