Ford execs, CAW brass meet on contract

Posted Monday, Jun 15, 2009, 2:22 pm in Employee News

Ford Motor Co.’s top labor executives met with the leadership of the Canadian Auto Workers on Friday in an effort to “improve the competitiveness” of its contract, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The poor economy, combined with recent contract modifications approved by union employees at Chrysler and General Motors in Canada, makes it necessary to change the existing contract, Ford spokeswoman Lauren More told the paper.

“Just simply to maintain our manufacturing presence in Canada, we have to take action now,” More said.. “We can’t afford to wait until 2011 … when the current contract ends.” Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s manufacturing and labor chief, as well as top Ford Canada officials attended the meeting, the story said.
