A letter from Franky Marchand

March 31, 2020

To All NRV Colleagues,

The current worldwide health crisis has led to huge burdens on our society. That burden has added to pressure in the homes and lives of our Volvo Family.

At the same time we are striving to safely meet delivery and quality commitments to our customers. Gratefully there are companies who stand ready to order units, if we can get their trucks slotted. Thus we re-started the plant on Monday, March 30, on a reduced line rate.

The coronavirus crisis has prompted the Company to consider measures to waive certain contractual language regarding continuation of health and prescription benefits.

Therefore, the following changes have been implemented for those who are laid off, as follows:

  • Core Employees on permanent layoff status beyond March 31, 2020 and with less than one (1) year of seniority as of the date of their permanent layoff will be provided with one (1) additional month (i.e. through April 30, 2020) of medical and prescription drug coverages only.
  • Competitive Employees laid off in February and on permanent layoff status beyond March 31, 2020 will be provided with one (1) additional month (i.e. through April 30, 2020) of medical and prescription drug coverages only.
  • Competitive Employees laid off in March and on layoff status beyond April 30, 2020 will be provided with one (1) additional month (i.e. through May 31, 2020) of medical and prescription drug coverages only.

Due to the unique situations we are facing with the coronavirus pandemic, we are moving this year’s Good Friday holiday from Friday, April 10, 2020, to July 6, 2020. That will allow a four- day weekend, in conjunction with the July 4th holiday.

In closing, thank you for your craftsmanship and dedication.

Franky Marchand
Vice President & General Manager
