AVON LAKE, Ohio — The Ford Motor Company plans to temporarily about 130 workers at its assembly plant here, according to Ford.
The Avon Lake assembly plant was already making the Ford F-650 and F-750, according to the Associated Press.
Back in January 2016, the Associated Press reported that Ford was increasing truck production at its assembly plant near Cleveland.
The Associated Press said the automaker says its truck plant in Avon Lake will be making the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty chassis cab.
Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker released a statement regarding the decision, saying:”We are temporarily moving our F-650, F-750 production to one shift at Ohio Assembly Plant as we match our production with customer demand.
as informed in AVON LAKE, OHIO — One hundred and thirty workers at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake will be temporarily laid off May 15 and are expected to return to work in the fall, when 2018 truck production is expected to begin.
In lieu of indefinite layoffs that would have affected about 900 workers, Ford will offer rotating shifts, job transfers and early retirement packages to most of the plant’s 1,600 union production workers during retooling of the plant.
The layoffs close down the night shift at the plant for four months, though maintenance staff and some other workers will continue to work.
Ford Spokeswoman Kelli Felker said the layoff is voluntary and aimed at workers with at least one year experience.
Restaurants, local stores, parts suppliers and others are affected when workers are laid off, so it’s never a good thing.”
