From The Socialist newspaper, 20 April 2006

Ford/Visteon:

Stewards prepare to fight for jobs

UNIONS IN Ford's components business Visteon are giving the company and Ford an ultimatum - withdraw your threats to our jobs, pay and conditions and pensions or face the threat of industrial action.

Ford of Europe made $150 million profit last year. But every day an assembly plant stops, it costs them $20 million. Visteon workers, despite six years of attacks, still have enormous power.

Their message to Ford is: "You spun us off to increase your profits, now you have to pay up to keep your plants going."

And their message to Ford workers is: "If we don't win, you'll be next." Already, Ford are warning their workforce that their pensions are "unaffordable".

Ford's guarantee was for Visteon plants to be sourced with work. Now they are reneging on this agreement by locating to low-wage countries.

All Ford workers must be made aware of the Visteon situation. A serious campaign must now start in the Visteon plants for a massive 'yes' vote for industrial action.
