300 laid off Ford employees called back to work
300 laid off Ford workers in Oakville are getting the chance to go back to work.
The assembly plant is adding a 3rd shift, negotiated in the CAW's agreement with the automaker.
Ford says demand for cars built in Oakville prompted the move.
There are still about 220 employees on layoff from the closure of Ford's St. Thomas plant last September. They get 1st priority.
Ford has about 800 employees on layoff. It agreed in negotiations to investments that could create about 600 new jobs in Oakville.
