As part of what we're calling the newly rechristened Accelerated Way Forward plan, Ford is reportedly opening up its buyout program to include all North American factory workers. Currently the buyouts are only being selectively offered at targeted plants. Apparently that's not getting the job done as effectively as GM's broader buyout program that saw over 30,000 workers
accepting buy out offers.
We're likely to see an official announcement about the move soon with details like how many factory workers Ford will be able to buy out and whether or not the buyout package being made to workers will change.
Thanks Chris and kjoyt for the tip!
