Ford announces a new ERE at the Almussafes plant due to lack of production

Date: March 26, 2023 Time: 11:20:27

Ford Spain has communicated to the representatives of the representatives of the production plant in Almussafes (Valencia) the opening of a new file of employment workers (ERE) due to the drop in production. In the last two years, two employment regulation files have already been carried out in 2020 and 2021 that have caused the dismissal of a thousand workers, as well as successive ERTEs.

In an internal statement to the staff, the management has transferred its intention to open a consultation period to apply an ERE and urges them to form the negotiating commission within a period of seven days, according to union sources.

The plant, with a workforce of 5,800 workers, is in effect until June 30, due to a lack of components and semiconductors and supply problems due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the increased incidence of covid in China.

A turn in its production towards electrification

Currently, the car company manufactures between 1,100 and 1,200 daily units of the Kuga, Transit, S-Max and Galaxy models. In April, stop producing the last two, as announced by the company a few months ago to advance the strategy towards total electrification in 2035.

The Valencian plant has communicated that it will begin to develop the new electric vehicles on the GE2 platform shortly. The announcement came after an electrification agreement between UGT and the European management of the multinational.
