THE FORD motor company is facing a second serious industrial tribunal over racism. A preliminary hearing into the case of Shinder Nagra took place at employment tribunal courts in east London on Monday. Shinder works in the engine plant at Ford Dagenham. He, along with Sukhjit Parma, was subjected to years of racist abuse and harassment from his foreman and group leader.

Ford management admitted liability in Sukhjit's case last year. Shinder Nagra told Socialist Worker, "My case is very similar to Sukhjit's. I faced racism, harassment and victimisation over a very long period of time. "It has put me under terrible stress. I have been off work for the last six to seven months. I just want this nightmare over as soon as possible. I have nothing to hide. I want to see justice done." The full tribunal is now due to begin in October.
