Ford employees from other plants began returning Monday to the local Automotive Components Holdings plant -- meaning temporary workers there will have to go.

Under a national United Auto Workers pact, Ford workers with seniority can transfer into the plant from other Ford plants -- displacing the Visteon production associates hired more recently. ACH spokesman Eric Mitchell said most of the new workers coming in are from Ohio, many from Ford plants in Lorain, Lima and Cleveland.
