UAW-FORD MEMBERS AUTHORIZE STRIKE IF NECESSARY IN NATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS

 DETROIT, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- UAW Vice President Ernest Lofton announced that union members at Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) facilities across the nation have voted by a 95-percent margin to authorize a strike if one is deemed necessary at the automaker.
 Lofton, director of the UAW Ford Department, said the strike authorization voting by the 43 UAW-Ford local unions was completed Tuesday, Aug. 31. The UAW represents approximately 97,000 workers at Ford. The vote empowers the UAW to call a strike if one is considered necessary.
 Negotiations are under way in Dearborn, Mich., for a new national agreement which would replace the current three-year agreement with Ford. The current pact expires at midnight Sept. 14.
