Visteon workers fighting on

From British daily News Line:

Saturday, 11 April 2009


THE Enfield Visteon plant convenor Kevin Nolan told News Line yesterday: ‘We have had a meeting with the company in New York. They are back at the table now.

‘I went out with our general secretary, Derek Simpson. I gave him all the information that myself and (Belfast convenor) John McGuire and Frank Jepson had.

‘They would not let me into the meeting in New York saying they feared for their safety. There was movement in the meeting, so they are back at the table to negotiate some form of package.

‘They are coming over next Tuesday for a meeting with all three convenors at a secret location. We are mounting our round-the-clock picket. We have great support. All the gates are fully manned.’

A delegation of sacked Visteon workers from the Basildon plant in Essex visited the picket line in Enfield, north London, yesterday.
