Ford has presented a 14-page initial proposal to the United Auto Workers for a new labour pact covering wages and benefits for 95,000 workers at Ford and Visteon, the Detroit News said. Citing UAW officials who read the proposal, the newspaper said Ford did not list specific demands, but outlined its business conditions, competitive issues and general objectives but made clear that it is determined to carry out its turnaround plan outlined in 2002 to restore profits and boost sales.
