Statement from UAW President Rory L. Gamble on Ford Protocols
“We continue to engage in talks with Ford on an ongoing basis regarding protocols for the health and safety of our members in the workplace.
The UAW is asking for as much testing as is possible to prevent exposure to the virus. That said, we also understand that the availability and accuracy of tests are fluid, developing issues as we navigate this crisis. Our position is that we employ as much testing as is possible at the current time and commit to full testing as soon as it is available. We are also strongly advocating self-reporting and testing for those exposed to the virus or exhibiting symptoms at a minimum, and a stringent adherence to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.
At the present time there is no restart date.”
