SANDUSKY

Members of the UAW Local 1216 are scheduled to discuss a tentative local agreement tomorrow at the training center.

A letter of understanding addressed to UAW vice president Bob King obtained by the Register discusses a competitive operating agreement and confirms Ford Motor Co.'s plan to source the Ford F250, F350 and Explorer lighting programs to the Sandusky plant.

The commitment is contingent upon successful ratification of the operating agreement between the UAW Local 1216 and Automotive Components Holdings, the letter states.

The tentative agreement states it would allow the ACH plant to remain in Sandusky and would secure new work for union members, while also offering the option of buyouts if the agreement is ratified.
