Ford plants won’t reopen Monday, closure extended


Ford announced last Wednesday that its plants would be shutting down and it does not look like it will be opening next Monday as planned.

The company posted this message on its site Tuesday:

“Ford’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees, dealers, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. In light of various governments’ orders to stay and work from home, Ford is not planning to restart our plants in the U.S., Canada and Mexico on Monday, March 30 as originally hoped.

“We are assessing various options and working with union leaders – including the United Auto Workers and Unifor – on the optimal timing for resuming vehicle production, keeping the well-being of our workforce top of mind.”
