LRC calls for justice for former Visteon workers

9th September 2009

Ex-Visteon workers will today be campaigning outside the offices of the Unite union in order to promote their plight, following the collapse of the UK arm of the motor industry component supplier, Visteon UK - which has left ex- and retired workers with greatly reduced pensions.

John McDonnell MP, LRC Chair, said:

“We condemn the way in which these workers have been treated, and will be calling upon the Government to intervene to ensure that Ford and Visteon meet their pension commitments to these workers in full.

“I will also be calling on the Government to review the operation of the Pension Protection Fund as it is not providing adequate support for people in these circumstances.”
