President’s Message-Production Shutdown effective Monday May 31st 2021

Brothers & Sisters,

Ford’s North American plants continue to be affected by the global semiconductor shortage, just as other automakers and industries around the world.

As a result of this continued part shortage, today the Ford Motor Company announced temporary lay-offs at multiple production facilities.

At Oakville Assembly Complex, production will cease effective Monday May 31st through to Sunday June 27th 2021, and is expected to resume on Monday June 28th 2021.

For those that have to start a new Employment Insurance claim or need to re-open their existing claim (as you previously declared that you returned to work full time), our Union Benefit Rep Paul Ivey is in the process of attempting to obtain a new reference code from Service Canada, which will be posted on our site late next week, allowing members to use with their Employment Insurance application

For those that are still able to report to Service Canada with their existing personal access code, continue to do so to claim for E.I benefits.

As usual, I will continue to update the membership with further information, as it becomes available.

In Solidarity,

Mark Sciberras

President, Unifor Local 707
