Union Demands Ford Close Dearborn Plant, Test All Workers for COVID-19
Posted On: May 26, 2020
May 26, 2020 | SAFETY & HEALTH | The local union that represents workers at Ford Motor Co.'s Dearborn Truck Plant is asking the automaker to shut down the assembly line until all plant workers are tested for the coronavirus. The union also is asking for additional break time at the plant that builds the best-selling F-150 pickup. Finally, it wants Ford to do a 24-hour shutdown each time after a worker tests positive for coronavirus for a thorough plant cleaning. The demands are part of a grievance filed Tuesday by UAW Local 600 against the company, said Gary Walkowicz, bargain committeeman at Dearborn Truck Plant. “There’s no safe way to be back to work right now, but a safer way is for everybody to be tested…” Detroit Free Press
