UAW-Ford Agreement Comes Down To Louisville Vote.
The fate of Ford’s agreement with the UA W is now rests with the Louisville Local 862 union members.
With the majority of voting completed across the country and an approximate 5,000 vote margin in favor of the new deal, the roughly 5,300 bloc of voters going to the polls now through Tuesday has a lot riding on the outcome.
Some key provisions of the deal are aimed specifically at Louisville which in addition to the previously announced two new shifts for the Escape also has the promise of a third shift for a yet-to-be-named vehicle. That shift would produce approximately one thousand jobs. Read more here at UAW Local 862.
