Ford Reassessing Timing of N.A. Plants Resuming Production

The following statement may be attributed to Kumar Galhotra, Ford’s president of North America:

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.

We will provide additional updates as details are confirmed.
