Pay vote on Ford site

Issue No. 2159

More than 100 contract workers inside the Ford complex in Southampton are voting on industrial action over pay. The workers are at Penske Logistics which works on site at the giant Southampton plant.

The new dispute comes just months after Ford slashed half its 1,000-strong workforce which led to a devastating fallout with job cuts throughout the contract and supply chain.
