It seems Ford isn't making anyone happy this week. Members of United Auto Workers Local 36 are protesting Ford manufacturing Lincolns at their Hermosillo plant in Mexico. The union thinks that the decision will harm the Wixom, Michigan plant that produces current the Lincoln Town Car and LS as well as the Ford Thunderbird and GT sports car. The plant has already been limited to one shift and folks think the limited platforms on the line today won't sustain the plant in the future. They're probably right since Ford hasn't said they will retrofit the plant to produce new models. Although the Lincoln made in Mexico will probably be the new Zephyr based on the Mazda 6, built in Mexico. So it's not like anything is shifting south. The union should be worried that they're producing such archaic and limited models instead.
