I just read the news about CCP closing at the end of 2009 and it realy doesn't surprise me at all. The place was a train wreck waiting to happen. Bad management and many bad workers btoh hourly and salary. I feel for many of the remaining people who didn't get out when the getting was good. It's a very tough place to work and Ford Motor didn't really want to invest the meney that was needed to make the plant operate efficiently. Very sad news for 1200+ families.

I was hasty in my last comment so please excuse my spelling errors but accept my honest sentiments for the remaining employees. It's going to be hell for them until 2009. I wish everyone well.

I retired from Cleveland Casting at the end of Feb.of this year. There are many excellent people loosing their jobs because of Ford Motor Co.'s bad management. The casting plant has been withering on the vine for several years. The new CEO of Ford was brought in to do just what's happening. Ford will eventually outsource everything. Buying American is a joke, a very bad joke. Nothing Ford makes anymore is really American made. I wish all 1200+ worker families the very best of luck in the future. God Bless you all.
