Statement from UAW President Dennis Williams on Ford Mexico Announcement
The following is a statement from UAW President Dennis Williams regarding Ford Motor Company’s announcement today that it will build a new assembly plant in Mexico:
Today’s announcement that Ford is investing in Mexico is a disappointment and very troubling. For every investment in Mexico it means jobs that could have and should have been available right here in the USA. This is another example of what’s wrong with NAFTA and why the TPP would be a disaster for the citizens of the United States. Companies continue to run to low-wage countries and import back into the United States. This is a broken system that needs to be fixed.
