President’s Update-Production Shutdown extended at Oakville Assembly Complex

Brothers and Sisters,

Ford’s North American plants continue to be affected by the global semiconductor shortage – along with automakers and other industries around the world.

As a result of this part shortage, today the company has announced that they plan to further postpone production at the Oakville Assembly Complex, until Monday May 10th 2021. They have indicated they will be updating our members with a robo-call, which will notify you of the extended lay off and expected return to work. As always we will share any further accurate details as they are available.
