The United Auto Workers union has called for a strike of 9,000 workers at the Ford Kentucky Truck plant.
On Wednesday evening, at 6.30, the union announced its plans of escalation of its plant walkout.
The union said that KTP is joining the strike after Ford refused to make headway in a bargaining agreement.
Ford Motor Company released a statement regarding the strike and termed the decision as “grossly irresponsible but unsurprising.”
The plant manufactures Ford’s Super Duty trucks, and a pair of large SUVs, the Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator.
A walkout that now adds significantly to the 25,300 autoworkers on the picket line at select Ford, GM, and Stellantis facilities across the country.
