Ford boss lashing out strongly – You have robbed yourselves

The trade union, of which many of Ford's factory employees in the USA are members, must really think about it, says the brand's boss.

The strike among members of the United Auto Workers union is a thing of the past at Ford. But the top management has not forgotten the consequences. For them, you will be able to feel it for many years to come, says director Jim Farley.

At the Wolfe Research Global Auto conference, Ford's chief executive used some of his speaking time to make a direct appeal to the union.

Among other things, the director said that the union's heavy-handed tactics (for more wages for the employees, ed.) had put several employees' jobs at risk.

– We need to think carefully, said Farley, referring to where Ford will have its cars built in the future.

To the AP news agency, Farley elaborated with a finding that the relationship with the union "has changed".

The director believes that the brand has gained nothing from the relationship with the trade union. No other than that Ford, as the first brand, had to close a factory temporarily during the conflict last year.

Ford chairman Bill Ford directly saw the closing of the brand's factory in Kentucky as a declaration of war on the part of the union.

– The shutdown of the factory harms thousands of Americans immediately: employees, suppliers and dealers, said the chairman of the board last October.
