Ford to cut up to 3,000 salaried jobs, many in Michigan: what we know

Over the next few days, thousands of Ford Motor Co. workers will be laid off, most of them in Michigan, as the company cuts costs and continues to reorganize and transform its business model.

In a memo sent Monday to about 31,000 Ford employees in North America, Executive Chairman Bill Ford and CEO Jim Farley explained that to “address all aspects of cost – from materials to those related to quality “, Ford will reduce its salaried workforce by 2,000 and temporary employees by 1,000 in the United States, Canada and India.

The majority of the job cuts will be in the United States, Ford spokesman Mark Truby told the Free Press, adding, “The majority of our employee base is in Michigan, so a percentage major job cuts are happening in Michigan.”

Ford has restructured its operations over the past two years, including splitting into divisions that focus on electric vehicles, internal combustion vehicles and commercial sales. It is part of the Ford+ plan.
