Around 400 workers were laid off early February 2020 at Ford’s Oakville Ontario assembly plant, shortly after they ended production of the Ford Flex, which debuted in 2008. The layoffs were announced late last year.
These layoffs were the second at the Oakville plant since 2019.
The Oakville plant continues to assemble the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus crossovers.
Ford has a defined contribution plan, which requires a mandatory four per cent contribution by employees and is matched at four per cent by the employer (source: Benefits Canada).
