(Reuters) – Ford Motor (NYSE:) Co said on Tuesday its U.S. salaried employees would be required to submit their vaccination status against COVID-19 by Oct. 8 and that it had asked its hourly employees to do the same.

Ford Motor (NYSE:) follows the example of rival General Motors Co. (NYSE:), in asking about employees’ vaccination status but not mandating shots.

Ford released a statement saying that it would assist in complying with federal COVID-19 vaccination regulations.

Brian Rothenberg, a UAW spokesperson confirmed that this voluntary process was available to hourly employees who work for the union.

CNBC interview: Ford CEO Jim Farley stated in an interview that COVID-19 was being vaccinated and the union is conducting a survey of employees to see if they are.
