Ford Motor Co. is idling 99 hourly workers at its Sharonville, OH, transmission plant. The job cuts come following the phase-out of a third shift of production of a 4-speed transmission. A new 5-speed automatic Torq-Shift truck transmission now will be produced at Sharonville, which will be used initially only on low output diesel-powered trucks and SUVs. The plant now employs 2,370 hourly and salaried workers.
