Now it’s time to stop bringing in temps! Hire full time or not at all.

Now cut the temporary BS out and hire everyone full time like it should be!!!

Holy hell I’ve made the cut this round !!! Congratulations temps !!!

Only took everyone not going to work for months to finally make some progress...

Maybe they should also consider advancing in progression employees too.

“Great job” UAW Local 249 Chairman and Bargaining Committee 👏

Guess I’ll be answering the calls from the plant next week instead of sending them to voicemail

Great job local 249 leadership!!!

Great job 249 and our bargaining committee

Does that mean dayshift doesn't have to cover nightshift next? 😆

I’m praying I am in this group. And if I’m not hey congrats to those new full timers. I love working with everyone I have met so far. This has truly been the greatest place I’ve worked at.

That’s awesome news! Thank you Jim and everyone else who helped make this happen.

Great job Jim and the while bargaining team!!

What hire dates ?

Yes

Congratulations everyone, now let's get this money.

So how does this fix staffing shortages and convince people to come work exactly?

Great job local 249 leadership!!

great job. it takes constant vigilance to prevent the trickery and lies management uses to race to the bottom of worker's rights. they need to listen to workers more and investment bankers less.

Means Temps won't quit when we lay off for over a month

This should never even be a goal…If the UAW and Ford don’t get this 2-tier stuff figured out…We are all screwed!!!

God I hope I’m part of the 290!

Great job! Congratulations to the 290!
