Visteon Workers To Resume 5-Day Workweek

After being placed on four-day weeks this month, white-collar workers at two facilities in suburban Detroit will go back to a five-day workweek in February.

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- White-collar workers at two Visteon Corp. facilities in suburban Detroit will resume a five-day workweek in February.

All 2,000 salaried workers at the automotive supplier's headquarters in Wayne County's Van Buren Township, and 50 at a testing center in Plymouth, were placed on four-day week at the beginning of this month. Their pay was cut by 20 percent.

Visteon spokesman Jim Fisher says the employees will be paid 100 percent of their base salary after they resume a five-day workweek. But about 1,200 salaried workers earning more than $75,000 will see their pay cut anywhere from 2 percent to 10 percent starting Feb. 1.

Fisher tells the Detroit Free Press that the wage cuts will be in effect until June 30, when the plan will be evaluated.
