There are about 4,000 employees at the Chennai plant, which are affected by this shut down even as Ford has confirmed that it might work with employees, unions, dealers, suppliers as well other stakeholders in Chennai and sanand from where the company would be manufacturing engines for exports so to make sure to have a fair deal.
