Outsourced: Ford Jobs Head South of The Border

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

Cleveland, OH (WOIO) -  It's a nightmare for local auto workers. More jobs are being ripped away and shipped out of the country!

Ford Motor Company's Brook Park plant has just been robbed out of producing the company's new diesel engine.

The engine will not be built at the Chihuahua, Mexico plant.

The announcement comes as a shock and blow to the Brook Park Ford community, who have been negotiating this deal for years.

UAW Local 1250 President, Mike Gammella, tells 19 Action News "of course I was disappointed, but I saw it coming."

A local retired autoworker also adds "they've outsourced all of our manufacturing, it's killing us!."
