From the linked article:

"Ford, which confirmed the move Wednesday, said it has not yet determined how many workers will be affected by the decision, but people familiar with the plan said Ford will cut about 700 of the plant's 2,800 jobs. Some displaced workers could be transferred to other Ford facilities."

I just don't understand how you go from a two shift operation to a single shift....but only cut 25% of the jobs. The vast majority of the workforce is directly associated with the shift activities. I suspect the numbers will be quite a bit higher.
