Ford Almussafes agrees to the two-month ERTE that will affect 2,300 employees

Date: May 20, 2024 Time: 09:38:28

The management of Ford Almussafes and the plant’s works council have agreed this Wednesday on the new two-month ERTE that will affect up to 2,300 workers at the Valencian plant for ten days due to the cessation of production of the Transit model and the lack of supply of engine parts. Both parties met this Wednesday to agree on the ERTE, which will take place between April 20 and June 20, and which was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

UGT, the majority union at the Almussafes plant, has assured that with this decision “the countdown begins to clear up the unknowns that are still pending.” “Two months that should give us peace of mind in the traffic that we will have to carry out until the new multi-energy vehicle announced by Jim Farley on March 27 in Dunton at UGT, will begin to be manufactured in Valencia,” they assured.

This announcement, they have recorded, “resolves the main problem” they had, both in the Valencian plant and in Ford of Europe as a whole, although it does not solve “everything in one fell swoop.” The situation means that for 10 days the number of people affected will reach 2,300 people out of a workforce of 4,600, which means 1,400 people a day in vehicles (800 due to the cessation of Transit, plus 600 due to the lack of production) and 900 in engines.

Conditions are maintained

The conditions of this new employment regulatory file will be the same as in previous ones, so 80% of the real salary plus 100% of seniority, extra pay and vacations will be maintained, according to UGT. This ERTE means that the plant will not have activity in all its areas during May 20, 21, 22, 27 and 28 and June 3, 10, 11, 17 and 18 and will mean not working on vehicles for 4 weeks in the afternoon shift.
