Ford Announces $250 Million Investment in EVs, Creating 450 UAW Jobs
Today, Ford announced a $250 million investment in three Michigan plants, which will create 450 new UAW jobs. Ford says the investment will help increase production and meet consumer demand for the new F-150 Lightning.
“Today’s announcement is a great example of the right way to navigate the transition to tomorrow’s vehicles by ensuring good-paying jobs of the future. Investing in building vehicles right here, in the United States, with the hard-working men and women of the UAW investments like this can pave the way to a future that protects our families, our communities and our middle class,” said UAW Region 1A Director Laura Dickerson.
Dickerson spoke at an event announcing the investment, along with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell. The event was also attended by leaders of UAW Locals 600, 898 and 2280, whose members will produce the vehicles.
