    Ford layoffs hit 364 more workers in Michigan, Ohio because of UAW strike disruption – By Phoebe Wall Howard (Detroit Free Press) / Oct 21, 2023

    Ford Motor Co. asked 364 more employees in Michigan and Ohio not to report to work beginning Monday, the automaker announced late Friday.

    These layoffs include 354 employees at the Sharonville Transmission Plant in Ohio and 10 employees at the Rawsonville Components Plant in Ypsilanti

    These layoffs are a consequence of the strike, because these two plants must reduce production of parts that would normally be shipped to Kentucky Truck Plant., which builds the F-Series Super Duty pickup truck, the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. Nearly 9,000 workers at Kentucky Truck have been on strike since Oct. 11.

    This brings the layoff total to 660 at the Sharonville plant and 45 at the Rawsonville plant, Ford said.
