Ford And UAW Launch Anti-Harassment Campaign, Plays On Constant Loop At U.S. Plants

Ford has released a video in relation to harassment claims recently filed against the automaker.

Last week, The New York Times published an investigative report revealing that many Ford workers, especially women, have been subject to harassment and retaliation at the firm’s Chicago factories.

The same day, Ford released the video below. Ford’s head of manufacturing and labor affairs, Bruce Hettle, and vice president of the United Auto Workers Union’s (UAW) Ford department, Jimmy Settles, speak about the claims and reinforced statements that no such behavior will be tolerated and that each and every report of harassment is investigated.

Since the release of the video, it has been playing on a constant loop at all of Ford’s 24 manufacturing plants in the United States.

Alongside the release of this clip, Ford chief executive Jim Hackett recently apologized on behalf of the company.

“I want to take this opportunity to say that I am sorry for any instance where a colleague was subjected to harassment or discriminatory conduct.

“On behalf of myself and the employees of Ford Motor Company, who condemn such behavior and regret any harassment as much as I do, I apologize. More importantly, I promise that we will learn from this and we will do better,” Hackett said.
