OC LERA March 15 2016 Dinner Meeting: Ford & UAW

Ford Motor Company and the UAW – From Recession to Recovery through Collective Bargaining
Plan to attend this special dinner, as OC LERA joins the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment in honoring the special labor-management partnership between Ford Motor Company and the United Auto Workers.  Hear both the public and the “behind the scenes” stories behind the successful contract negotiations for an agreement that kept Ford from the brink of bankruptcy and not only retained many jobs for the nearly 52,000 members represented by UAW, but provided packages that assured those leaving Ford were treated fairly and left with dignity. Hear from the principals involved how they were able to make the best of the worst of circumstances and to ensure prosperity for both the company and the workers.
