AUTO TALKS
(2007-10-04)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Ford might want to cut more jobs when it returns
to the bargaining table with the United Auto Workers.
Several industry analysts say Ford must close more factories and
reduce its work force if it wants to stay competitive.
The automaker has about 60,000 hourly workers represented by the
UAW.
A demand for further downsizing at Ford would be different from
the UAW's tentative contract agreement with General Motors. That
deal was reached last week after a two-day nationwide strike.
Any job cuts at Ford would be in addition to the 27,000 hourly
workers who left the company under early retirement and buyout
programs offered last year.
The union hasn't said if it will bargain with Ford or Chrysler
next.
