Councilman Baker Supports Ford Employees

August 28, 2023

Louisville (August 28, 2023) – As the potential for a strike looms among Louisville’s Ford workers, Councilman Phillip Baker (D-6) voices his solidarity with the local workforce.  

“I firmly back the Louisville-based unions in their call for improved salaries, better healthcare, and more favorable working hours for the dedicated individuals at Ford. It’s my hope that the discussions recognize the caliber of employees that Ford has, ensuring the contracts are amended accordingly,” said Councilman Baker.

The Louisville Assembly Plant and Kentucky Truck Plant are integral to Ford’s production line and have been in the community since the 1950s and 1960s, employing over 13,000 community members.

Baker envisions a future where these plants continue to grow and expand, offering more opportunities to the residents of Louisville. He recognizes the critical role Ford holds in the local economy.

With union contracts set to expire on September 14, 2023, workers are preparing to strike if their demands are not met.
