(Avon Lake) The Ford Assembly Plant in Avon Lake let workers know on Tuesday that there will be lay-offs this summer, maybe as early as June. The lay-offs will occur when the plant re-opens after it's summer shut-down.
Avon Lake Mayor Greg Zilka says workers were aware of lay-offs in the future since an announcement came in October of 2011. The assembly of the Ford Econoline Van stalled the lay-offs that were supposed to happen in 2013.
Zilka says some workers will have the option of transferring to another plant or early retirement. Some may be called back to the Avon Lake Plant at a later date. Zilka says he should know more about the amount of workers the lay-offs will effect by later this week.
