Despite intense conversations with the labor market, the UAW failed to reach an agreement with a auto parts supplier from midnight on Thursday and called a strike of 1,900 workers building interior parts for Ford, Fiat Chrysler and Tesla.

Originally built by Ford, Salinefabrics reviewed a number of ownership changes and was acquired by the French company Faurecia in 2012. Workers built dashboards, center consoles and other interior parts.

Among the affected vehicles are the Ford Mustang and Lincoln Continental as the sub-supplier ships to the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, among other destinations. Ford workers tell the free press parts delivered by the plant are kept thin of course, so the strike could be felt quickly.

"UAW Local 892 and Faurecia have not reached a preliminary agreement after the expiration of the agreed-upon-contract contract extension," UAW submitted on Facebook early Friday. "As a result, Region 1A Director Chuck Browning has demanded action against the company, effective at 12.05 on June 21, as endorsed by international president Gary Jones. Dealers continue to negotiate and will be updated as done progress."

Faurecia's future cockpit vision incorporates the re-imaging of the human machine interface for traditional controls by integrating smart surfaces into the vehicle's interior in ways that are natural and enhance interior design. solutions for operating functions such as lighting or ventilation can be integrated into different surfaces and materials, such as plastic, leather, aluminum and real wood – all with haptic feedback that the user can feel.
