Bucking Bronco : Ford begins temporary layoffs as UAW strike enters sixth day

Wayne, Michigan –  With the UAW strike entering its sixth day, 600 workers at the Wayne Michigan Ford assembly plant face temporary layoffs as the production of Ford Broncos halts. 

In a recently released comment from Ford over the temporary cuts, they noted that “this layoff is a consequence of the strike.”

The plant in Wayne, Michigan currently has nearly 13,000 workers participating in strike actions. 

The 600 employees have been temporarily laid off due to the fact that their work is dependent on a protective coating process called “e-coating” and this department is currently on strike. 

At CIE Newcor, 300 employees will be laid off at four different locations with an anticipated duration of approximately one month. 

With strike actions continuing and the subsequent layoffs, Ford warns that it could take up to a year or two to fully restore the American automotive supply chain. 

Regardless, talks continue between the UAW and automakers to try and reach a resolution.
