  1. Mulally was a leader and proved it at Ford and showed it sitting across the table from the congress members and said "no we are good".
  2. With 38 months of time ticking away this Orwell guy kinda makes for us questioning souls to wonder what can occur in that time frame. Funny coincidence?
  3. Looking around here at CAP it is very apparent that we are in some kind of different place from just couple years ago or so. We have this unsure feeling on just about every subject related to assembling units to maintaining equipment, parts on hand and just something simple like cleaning the place. The workforce hourly and salaried has pretty much become completely unengaged with their operations, the parts they work with much less the finished products we send out the door are just something in passing. High level managers are in some kind of dazed state of... we need the units, we don`t have the parts but dam it we need the units... anyway so send the unfinished units to the D/T lots and count them in our daily numbers. The leave and never return is at a level I`ve never seen in all the years I`ve been watching from the inside of our paradise. CAP went from 1800 to over 5400 hourly working stiffs and now there`s less than 1000 vested working stiff. The new faces never seem to stop changing to even newer faces. Then there`s the make believe world at CAP. FTT numbers higher than ever, FCPA results prove everything is GREAT and Quality is at an all time high.... but AWOL`s consistently running at 20% to 25%, double up`s everywhere, move operator`s to DELTA and QC operations that umm well just do as their told, kinda. Where will Ford be as a member of the business society? Making electric units? Saving the world from green house gasses? Making everyone included? Pretending the bubble they`ve been riding isn`t going to pop? With the leadership in place on the law making level and the conforming to every trendy issue Ford is trying to keep up with, one can`t help but wonder, where all this uncertainty is headed. Any thought`s ???

    Besides all the Attorney General`s fussing over the true pandemic there`s this thought. It`s not just the FOP in Chicago but also in Los Angeles the County Sheriff has stated he doesn’t want to lose ten percent of his cops by forcing them to choose between their jobs and bodily freedom, so he won’t make them vax up. This is an example of a growing number of police agencies opting to keep their cops instead of enforcing an arguably unconstitutional order requiring officers to get the jab. Chicago FOP said the department couldn`t operate with some 40 to 50% of his members not reporting because of their decision not to comply with the mandate. Then the L.A. County Sheriff said that he would disregard the Health Department directive to force his deputies to get the jab by October 1 because he doesn’t “want to be in a position to lose 5, 10% of my workforce overnight on a vaccine mandate.” October 01 has come and gone and the mandate hasn`t been enforced. With both of those examples I`m wondering how this will play out for the auto industry? CAP runs 20 to 25% AWOL`s daily. Now put the mandate in place, this would be something that would give the system players even more reason to be on medical leave and it would be easy to see that 25% bump up to 30% or more. Can you hear it? … “I got the jab and now I feel terrible” or “I can`t smell or I get dizzy, and I am afraid to drive…” Ford`s CAP is in a bad position when it comes to filling operations. Even the non-experienced and clueless people that do stay more than a week soon see the reality of the management assignments they are assigned and either cruel up in a ball in some therapy session or become one of the working zombie’s that… well don`t have a clue. Then there`s more down time in the last 18 months then the last bunch of years and even the people that usually stay away from the system playing don`t want to be in paradise even when the parts come in. We at CAP walk in (when the parts are here) to the second highest profit producing facility in the Ford Empire and there is a cancer type of syndrome going on and it’s a high level of malignant stupidity that is driving this poorly thought out, overly politicized weird ass mandating from the beginning that the leadership has made speeches calling for it. The true pandemic is “stupidity”. But the good doctor hasn`t got around to mandating a vaccine for that yet….

    A question for the Ford employee`s, not the “moderator please, members”. When did manufacturing jobs become so unwanted? Is it covid exposure? Vaccine mandates? Lack of need for a job? Or Walmart pays better? So far in 2021, Americans are quitting manufacturing jobs at the highest rate we've ever seen. Then in the last few years we see on the plant floor this quitting virus jumping the fence and never before has so many salaried employee`s done the leave your keys and radio on the LL5`s desk and just disappear. Are they quitting to go to better job? Moving back in with Ma & Pa? 306,000 workers quit manufacturing in August. 300,000 quit in July. Maybe not our “moderator please” members but any member that’s been on the floor at CAP can backup this phenomenon with firsthand experience on any given day of the week when their short 60 or 70 bodies to start up in just Final. The “night letter`s” are echoing 20 to 25 percent AWOL daily. This is a by product of the leadership making way for a complete “it`s someone else’s problem” or “poor me, I can`t work so much” welfare state of mind. When all the fingers are pointing at what`s wrong and laying blame for everything in the last almost 250 years on a small percentage of people who… come to work, guess this is what happens when the leadership just doesn`t think out of their box. Wonder where this welfare state of mind is heading?

    It seems the freedom of speech and/or the freedom to exchange information has once again come to be a thing of the past, on the book of faces. "Shared this on Facebook and it was removed for violating Community Standards"

    On the topic of vaccine mandates.... The U.S. will open the Canada and Mexico borders for fully vaccinated travelers in November, lifting a 19-month ban that began with the pandemic. But…. If one enters through a southern border “not” as a tourist or just seeking employment with Ford, vax or no vax… no problem come on in. Make sure to stop and pick up your welcoming gifts

    Actually I believe we have some time before all the mandates and pressure will be lumped on our plates, here in the land of Lincoln. Do I think the IUAW will roll with the company, sure do. Will we have many members with every good reason to be pushed to the limits they have to set for themselves and their families, that is their freedom, we all have to make that decision. I am completely in support of every member that makes the decision to jab or not to jab. For those "moderator please"... members?" that is in no way sitting the fence, no its the freedom of choice so many fought for. May be hard for some to understand that. road turtle I agree completely. Ford is testing the water and will do just as you mentioned. Our local rep`s will be put under the bus by the IUAW and we will see all the games played by all of the above. When, Who and What will all be answered by the first quarter of next year. When or if a dead line is given, Who will go first hourly or salaried. What plants shut down because of the mandates. Shutting down will be multiple sided, get the jab and play the system--> medical leave. Don`t get the jab and Ford loses something the company just doesn`t have any to spare... employee`s that come to work. Managers leave at break and lunch to never return at CAP---> daily. So I`m sure those big wheels are doing some real contemplating the results from their falling into their servitude to the controlling leaders. You could bet the farm Prickster is pushing his rich guy control freakiness right at Larry`s front door in the city of the White Sox. But all this will take time. Bottom line, is why ford exists and why we go in everyday. Our reasons to work are as diverse as our reasons to be jabbed or not to be jabbed. For those that put a political spin on this and other facts our country is going through some extremely weird time just for their tribe factor reasoning, are just making "their choice". Is it my choice no, do I feel those that do put it out there that "theirs" is the only and right way all I can agree with is once again it`s their choice. Do they have to agree with my chose, no. By those laws put in place 200 plus years ago I think the "moderato please" members will have to agree to disagree, ANNND find a majority to vote as needed in a little more than a year. fmccap don`t get ready for much of a down time, orders keep rolling in and remember it`s all about the bottom line. GREAT info fmccap, better believe the Prickster is freakin out on this silly little law.

    “The deadline for federal employees at the Veterans Administration to provide proof of vaccination was Friday. As it turns out, there are still more than 45,000 VA workers who have not provided a CDC card or other proof of vaccination as of this morning. One question we might ask is why there is such a high rate of vaccine hesitancy right in J** B***n’s backyard. Are they not all onboard with the whole “build back better” thing? But what is probably the more pressing question would be why these people are still showing up for work. Isn’t B***n “fed up” with the ongoing “threat” posed by the unvaccinated? Shouldn’t they have been fired already? The VA is saying they “may eventually face disciplinary action,” but there certainly doesn’t seem to be much of a sense of urgency about it thus far.” Everyday there is more proof the leadership is really lacking in, leadership.

    Finland Follows Sweden and Denmark in Halting Use of Moderna Vaccine for Younger Age Group Finish health authorities have paused the use of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine on Oct. 7 for men under the age of 30, just one day after Sweden and Denmark announced a similar measure due to side effects. For years now most consumer based business have turned away from in house R&D teams to the less cost involved consumer R&D team driving the data building process. Notice how many "survey`s" one gets when you purchase something? It can be found everywhere including the auto industry. I`m sure most are aware of the throw it out there and see if they like it technique. That is why the recall effect seems to be more frequent. But, with the mistakes of the past in both the medical and/or pharmaceutical business the trend of turning away from in house R&D was unheard of. Now don`t get me wrong there was and always will be the sneaky shit when it comes to the companies data/results but, that`s where the government agencies would step in. Sure seems like that business technique is a thing of the past. I get it, we needed something quickly but its proving that the "fast" why is using consumer R&D. Then having "one" doctor advising on everything and changing/spinning almost everything makes for the hesitation many have. Then add in the issue of how the data changes to suit whatever the theme of the day is, all this builds into the decisions to get or not to get the jab. If one was to make a list of the things that have gone wrong, responded to wrongly or just not worked out as its been stated things would, the list would be mighty long.

    Unfortunately, the cat is coming out tha bag, for the socialists, control freaks and just pain nuts. There are things occurring that may just be the complete downfall here in the make believe libbter world (clarity in their libbster perception, soon) Ford and so many other worldwide businesses never come out and say it with clarity or to the point honesty but, there is only one reason to exist and that is profit which is money they control. Ford has painted their self portrait as this loving, caring, and all-inclusive entity for some time now. With the help from other larger than life loving, caring, and all-inclusive entities. Does Ford do good things? For sure. Ford gives money and products to good causes? Without a doubt. Is this the true perception of the Ford company? Of course it is, just ask any book of facers, Twitters and etc…etc. The dogs will tell you perception is everything in business. Pandemic? Yeah ok something is going on. Did the book of faces or twits grab the opportunity to be loving, caring, and all so inclusive to help their “customers”? Of course, they did. Did Ford and all the larger than life companies fall in line to love and care? Most certainly, as long as the perception was going to pay off with, profit. Of course I`m using “Ford” as a generalization because this is a Ford Employee forum, (lord knows I don`t want to piss off the Doc) because you could plug in any number of perception seeker in it`s place and still be right on the money. Jab or not to Jab… it`s not a question it`s a choice. Ford will follow the dollars no matter what, their perception, equals dollars. Go along with the customers (government committee`s) that buy thousands at a time Rangers to be sent to Afghanistan (and given away) and it`s get the perception you care about the employee`s welfare and make it look like you`re moving towards making the jab a requirement. And… all is good on capital hill and the dollars keepa flowin. Remember, this is all an outward appearance, a good tone on the nightly news and of course all those “LIKES” on book of face. In reality, let Ford shut one money maker down for the lack of the jab and the perception will change and the spin is on. It`s inevitable, someone is going to talk. There`s no need to look for or to think hard on the reason any person step`s forward is coming forward with perception clarity. Sheepies are as sheepies do, Big Business is as Big Business does, and capital hill is just a perception…the book of faces knows this oh so well. Faces, Twits and its wholly owned subsidiaries will be in damage control… big time if this keeps coming out. https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/celebrity/facebook-whistleblower-reveals-her-identity-claims-company-is-causing-ethnic-violence-around-the-world/ar-AAP8pRa?ocid=mailsignout&li=BBnb7Kz JMOP…. The sheep dogs have been pointing this out for a while now.

    Terms of employment is a negotiated and agreed on requirements to maintain a union represented employee`s active employee status. To put any change in the terms and/or requirements to be employed by Ford would have to be a negotiated arrangement put to a vote by the dues paying members of the union. This is why certain government employee`s were not apart of certain mandates. "Voluntary" will be used as verbiage till some form of an agreement is scared into place. Salaried employee`s are doomed. (unless their choice is, jabbed) Except those represented by a union. Then again that`s old school thinking about contracts and agreements. That thinking may well be a thing of the past.
