Former Ford-Visteon workers picketed Ford’s factories in Dagenham and Bridgend on Monday of this week. They are still demanding their pension.

The workers won redundancy payments when they occupied factories in 2009 after they were sacked by employers Visteon.

Meanwhile workers occupied the Coventry factory of Manganese Bronze for several hours on Wednesday of last week.

Price Waterhouse Coopers announced more than 150 redundancies after the company—which manufactures London taxis—was taken into administration by last month. The workers are members of the Unite union.
