As part of Ford Motor Co.’s new proposed four-and-a-half year labor contract with the United Auto Workers, the company is committing to $8.1 billion in manufacturing-related investments over the life of the agreement.
The money stretches across more than a dozen plants and includes the addition of new EV models, stamping improvements, added production crews and engine and transmission manufacturing investments.
"On product and investment, we won more than $8 billion in investments in our plants by the end of the agreement, from assembly to engine, from transmission and driveline to stamping," UAW VP Chuck Browning said during remarks on Saturday. "We have kept existing product in our plants and we have one new product that will keep members on the job."
Here's how Ford is investing across some of its biggest manufacturing plants.
