A message from President Eric Hall

Hello, I am Eric Hall and I have the honor to serve the membership of Local 249 as the President.  Local 249 has a great history of producing the F150 truck, best-selling vehicle for 35 plus years and it’s the safest truck made.  In 2014, we began producing the Ford Transit van as we are a dual facility plant.

Our plant has won the Harbor award for efficiency twice, this has been unprecedented and it is a real reflection of the hard working members in our local.  We also build the highest quality vehicles as well, due to the work force made up of the best people in the world.    Our local is nearly 8000 members strong due to the high quality vehicle we build.

As a union, we constantly demand that all aspects of our work life be made more fair and better for our membership.  This goes back to a fundamental belief that all workers have the right to organize, work in a safe workplace, and be treated equally.  We know that unions with their wages and benefits impact all of our communities and lift them up.
