Ford has slashed 1,200 Jobs after UAW's strike finds no resolution.

The current round of layoffs was attributed to supply chain shortages and other constraints by Ford communications director T.R. Reid.

Last week, 8,700 UAW members walked off the job, shutting down Ford Motor Company’s iconic and extremely profitable Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville. The strike was called after Ford refused to make further movement in bargaining.

The move came one day before the four-week mark since contracts expired at Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis.

“We have been crystal clear, and we have waited long enough, but Ford has not gotten the message,” said UAW President Shawn Fain. “It’s time for a fair contract at Ford and the rest of the Big Three. If they can’t understand that after four weeks, the 8,700 workers shutting down this extremely profitable plant will help them understand it, he added.”
