CONTINUOUS SERVICE FOR TEMPORARY EMPLOYEE

Upon the request of the UAW, Ford Motor Company agreed that temporary layoffs (TLOs) exceeding thirty (30) days or more as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will NOT constitute a “break” in continuous service with the Company. Temporary employees have been coded “S” during these temporary layoffs to protect their eligibility toward full-time employment. Furthermore, TLO’s will also protect future raises for all members.

HEALTH CARE COVERAGE FOR TEMPORARY EMPLOYEES

Healthcare will continue for temporary employees during the COVID-19 crisis. Furthermore, healthcare will become effective as scheduled for TLO employees who are newly hired and reach their 90-day grow-in period during the COVID-19 crisis.
