Ford creating 1000 jobs for battery packs



Ford Motor Co. will build battery packs for its new generation of electrified vehicles at its Rawsonville Components Plant in Ypsilanti Township -- part of a $450 million investment that will bring new jobs to the area and protect hundreds of others.

The news was announced in a letter to hourly workers at the factory last week.

Details about the timing and staffing are being negotiated between the company and the United Auto Workers, according to the letter signed by Rawsonville Plant Manager Kirk Wurtzel and Joel Goddard, chairman of UAW Local 898, which represents workers at the factory.

If it includes the 3rd gen hybrid system, it should.
