Ford’s production workers at Kentucky, Louisville vote against new labor deal

The United Auto Workers (UAW) production workers at Ford’s Louisville assembly and Kentucky truck plants have rejected a proposed four-and-a-half year contract, according to the union’s local unit on Facebook. The skilled trades workers, however, voted in favor of the deal. The UAW Local 862 union reported that 55% of the production workers voted against ratifying the contract, while 69% of the skilled trades workers supported it. The union did not disclose the overall percentage of votes in favor or the total number of votes cast. Both the union and Ford have not yet responded to RushHourDaily’ requests for comment.

Union workers are currently voting on contracts from Stellantis, GM, and Ford after the first coordinated strike against Detroit’s Big Three automakers. In a separate development, UAW union members at General Motors’ Flint assembly plant in Michigan narrowly voted against the proposed contract with the automaker.
