Union hopes to retain more Ford workers in Northeast Ohio

Associated Press

LORAIN, OHIO: Union leaders are trying to save some of the 900 Ford Motor Co. jobs threatened with layoffs in northeast Ohio.

The effort involves the Ohio General Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, west of Cleveland.

United Auto Workers Local 2000 is working with state and county officials on holding additional talks with Ford to save the jobs. The plant has nearly 1,900 workers.

Layoffs are part of a tentative agreement reached in 2011 for 2012-15, according to information on the Local 2000 website.

Gov. John Kasich’s spokesman said Friday the state is confident Ford will abide by a 2011 commitment to protect the jobs.

Ford spokeswoman Kristina Adamski tells The Morning Journal of Lorain that the company is exploring options including temporary layoffs, retirement packages and rotating shifts.
