The Ford Essex Engine Plant will be losing the third shift this fall, but no layoffs are planned.
The elimination of the shift is blamed on the low demand for 5.0-litre engines.
The company says that employees on the third shift will be offered jobs at the plant’s Annex, where the 7.3-litre engine is produced.
