Ford questions its business in Europe and will review each plant, according to unions



Ford management today announced to the unions of its plants in Europe that has questioned its global business in this continent, which will make decisions "difficult and hard" and that will review the production of each plant, including the Valencian Almussafes .

This was explained to Efe by the UGT representative at Ford Almussafes, Carlos Faubel, after the "long, tense and difficult" meeting of five hours that they have held in Cologne (Germany) with the entire management team of the company in Europe.

The multinational had convened that meeting to present to the representatives of the European works councils the business plan for the future.

"We came out with bad feelings," Faubel warned, since the European leadership claims that it "has no other" way out of the company's current results and forecasts, which is why it has announced to the unions that it will not invest "one more euro. "If you have not guaranteed the return on that investment.

Therefore production and employment in the European factories will decrease, whose unions will agree on a joint response statement that will be presented to the respective works councils, according to the UGT representative in Almussafes.

Among other demands, they will ask the management to specify their plans in each plant and give them the detailed details before the next meeting that has been announced to them on Tuesday, scheduled for November 15.
