After announcing closure, Ford asks production and metallurgists charge negotiation

São Paulo – Workers at Ford in Taubaté (SP), in a meeting, decided not to respond to a call from the company for a “temporary return” to service for approximately 40 of them. For the Metalworkers Union of the region (Sindmetau), the summons is a kind of “retaliation” by the company, to try to divide the organization of the movement.

Last Friday (5), preliminary decisions of the Labor Court suspended layoffs at the factories in Taubaté and Camaçari (BA) without prior negotiation. Metallurgists recall that, on January 11, the company had announced immediate closure of activities. And they say that Ford has been pushing for some workers to resume production, which the court sees as “illegal constraint”.

According to the union’s legal coordinator, Isaac do Carmo, the company’s attitude disregards the injunction granted by the 2nd Labor Court of Taubaté. Among the judicial determinations is the prohibition of individual proposals or the practice of harassment. “The judge’s decision establishes that Ford submit a joint negotiation schedule with the union,” he noted.

The entity’s president, Cláudio Batista, Claudião, criticized Ford’s management in Taubaté. “The company did not inform the union that it would call a group to return to production. Our fight is for the maintenance of all jobs ”, he said. The Taubaté plant, which produces engines and gearboxes, has about 830 direct employees. They are on paid leave.

Since the announcement of the closure, a month ago, workers have kept vigil in front of the factory, in addition to various activities. This Friday (12), for example, they will make a motorcade through the city, with concentration starting at 7 am.
