More than 1,500 Temporary Ford and GM Workers Made Full-Time Seniority Employees
On Monday, GM and Ford announced that 1,522 temporary workers would be moved to full-time status, with more promotions to come. GM has promoted 930 employees across 30 facilities, with Ford transitioning 592 temporary workers. The move comes shortly after UAW members across the Big 3 ratified contracts which pledged to convert temporary workers to full-time status. FCA is still working to implement the changes, while GM and Ford say they will continue to transition additional workers in the coming months.
