Ford to close Norfolk plant

Ford Motor Co. told workers Friday it will close its Norfolk truck factory during the week of June 25 – an announcement that puts a solid date on shutdown plans first announced in April, union officials said. A memo signed by both plant manager Kevin Gideon and Ed Hay, the chairman of United Auto Workers Local 919, was given to workers Friday morning. "I'm not shocked. I had a premonition," said union President Chris Kimmons. "I was hoping that maybe we could stretch it out until September."
