Ford (F -0.5%) will probably hire more than the 12K employees it pledged to under the terms of a 2011 contract with the UAW, according to Joe Hinrichs.

The automaker is already 75% of the way to the commitment to add 12K new hire by 2015.

The latest round of hiring was in Claycomo, Missouri outside of Kansas City where Ford builds F-series trucks.
