Ford to cut up to 3,000 salaried jobs, many in Michigan: What we know

Over the next few days, thousands of Ford Motor Co. salaried workers will be let go, the bulk of them in Michigan, as the company trims costs and continues to reorganize and transform its business model. 

In a memo sent to about 31,000 Ford employees in North America on Monday, Executive Chair Bill Ford and CEO Jim Farley explained that to “tackle all aspects of costs — from materials to those related to quality,” Ford will reduce its salaried workforce by 2,000 and agency employees by 1,000 in the U.S., Canada and India.

The majority of the cuts will be in the U.S., Ford spokesman Mark Truby told the Free Press adding, “The majority of our employee base is in Michigan so therefore a significant percentage of the job cuts are in Michigan.”

Ford has been restructuring its operations over the past couple of years including dividing into divisions that focus on either electric vehicles, internal combustion vehicles and commercial sales. It is part of the Ford+ plan.
