Ford and The United Auto Workers reached some tentative national labor deal early saturday morning at about 3:20 a.m. `Our bargaining committee came through for our active and retired members` said Ron Gettelfinger – UAW President. `Our team is proud of each and every negotiator because they have encouraged Ford to invest in product and people while addressing the economic needs of our active and retired members`.
`We face enormous challenges – and we also have enormous potential` said Bob King – UAW Vice President, who is directing the union`s National Ford Department. `Our goals for this contract were to win new product and investment, to enhance job security and protect seniority – and we made progress in all these areas`.
The UAW's recent deal with Chrysler includes a so-called two-tier system where longtime employees who leave non-production jobs will be replaced with new workers who earn $14 an hour instead of $28, according to Automotive News.
Joe Laymon – Ford group vice president at Human Resources and Labor Affairs, said the deal is subject for ratification by the UAW members… and `we will not discuss the specifics of the tentative agreement until after it becomes final`. The agreement will be including a memorandum of understanding for establishing an independent retiree care trust for health.
