(Reuters) -The United Auto Workers said on Saturday they had to escalate action against Ford (NYSE:F) as they expected a revised offer from the automaker but were given the same offer as two weeks ago.

"Unfortunately, we had to escalate our action. We came here today to get another offer from Ford, and they gave us the same exact offer as two weeks ago," the union said in a post on X.

The escalation action from the UAW happened on Wednesday when 8,700 union members at Ford's Kentucky truck plant went on strike after the union said the No. 2 U.S. automaker refused to move further in contract bargaining.

UAW shut down Ford's biggest plant globally, halting production of lucrative pickup trucks with little warning, in a sharp escalation of the union's four-week targeted strike against the Detroit Three automakers.

Ford yesterday said it is temporarily laying off another 550 employees after the UAW walkouts at its Kentucky Truck Plant and Chicago Assembly Plant.
