Strike Possible at Ford

Workers at the Ford factory in Vsevolozhsk, Leningrad region, could start an indefinite strike from June 1, 2012, reported Tuesday, citing the plant's primary trade union.

It is possible that the assembly line will be stopped on that day.

Ford employees made a number of demands of company management in February concerning working conditions and compensation. Ford has offered a compromise solution, but it found no support among the workers. Late last year, the workers at the Ford plant conducted so-called warning strikes.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
