Ford Motor Co.'s buyout plan drew an overwhelming response from white-collar employees in some parts of the company, prompting the automaker to begin saying no to some offers.

Employees who thought they had buyout deals were shocked and angry after learning that the offers were being pulled, some Ford workers told the Free Press.

Monday was the final day for workers to accept buyouts.
"They got more retirements than they bargained for," a longtime Ford engineer said. He and others asked that their names not be printed for fear of retribution.

Ford spokeswoman Marcey Evans would not confirm whether buyouts were withdrawn, but said the moves were possible if some areas of the company "received more acceptances than they were able to accommodate."

She said workers who signed up for the voluntary separation program were informed from the onset that "they were not all guaranteed to be approved."

But some workers felt stung.
