Dec. 14, 2018—A United Auto Workers union local is warning of as many as 230 layoffs at a Ford Motor Co. factory in Michigan, though the company says workers will be offered jobs at another plant, reported Newsmax.

Ford says the move will be similar to the changes announced last month in which about 1,150 workers will be transferred from factories producing slow-selling products to plants making cars and parts that are in greater demand. 

Van Dyke Transmission employs about 1,550 workers and is located in Sterling Heights, Mich., just north of Detroit. The 50-year-old factory produces automatic transmissions for Explorer, Edge, Escape and Flex SUVs and Transit Connect vans.
