Ford Boycott halted for the time being
AFA suspends Ford boycott for six months
Following a meeting with a group of Ford dealers on June 5, AFA has suspended its boycott of Ford Motor Company until December 1, 2005. In the meeting, the dealers asked for time to see if the concerns raised by AFA in their boycott announcement could be addressed by them in cooperation with officials from Ford Motor Company.
AFA felt that the dealers were making a good faith effort and agreed to accept their request. Therefore, the suspension request was accepted by AFA. During the remaining period AFA will work with the dealers in attempting to resolve our differences.
We urge those supporting the boycott to disregard the boycott until December 1, 2005.
On or about December 1 we will notify our supporters as to status of the boycott.
Thanks to all who contacted their local dealers. Your involvement made a difference!
