Ford Motor Co. has decided to not invest in Windsor, according to the union representing employees there.

“Diassappointing [sic] news from Ford this morning that it will produce engines in Mexico instead of Windsor. Would have meant 1,000+ #goodjobs,” the union tweeted.

Unifor later issued a news release. In it, Unifor said it had hoped that months of discussions between Ford, two levels of government and the union would result in “significant investment which would have secured the production of a global engine at the Windsor facility.” Read more here.
