More layoffs coming from Ford this week



Ford recorded charges of $2 billion and $608 million in 2021 and 2022, respectively, for similar actions, it said in the filing.

This week’s layoffs are expected to affect all three of Ford’s business units: Ford Blue, its traditional internal combustion engine operations; Model e, its electric vehicle unit; and Ford Pro, its fleet service operations, according to the CNBC report.
