A letter has been reportedly sent to all the employees notifying them about the decision. The word reportedly came directly from Ford CEO Jim Farley and Executive Chairman Bill Ford. “We committed to sharing information as decisions are made along the way. As we tackle all aspects of costs – from materials to those related to quality – we are informing some Ford teammates this week in the U.S., Canada and at FBS in India, that their positions are being eliminated. Overall, we are reducing our salaried workforce by about 2,000, as well as reducing agency personnel by about 1,000. These actions follow significant restructuring in Ford operations outside of North America over the past couple of years," the letter reads.

The letter also states that Ford worked differently than in the past, examining each team’s shifting work statement connected to the Ford+ plan. “We are eliminating work, as well as reorganizing and simplifying functions throughout the business. You will hear more specifics from the leaders of your area of the business later this week," the letter further stated.
