THE multinational car company Ford was forced to pay out £150,000 to former worker Shinder Singh Nagra last week after he suffered racist abuse at Ford's Dagenham plant. Shinder Singh Nagra won an industrial tribunal in April. He will also receive a medical disability pension of £12,000 a year for the rest of his life.
Shinder Singh Nagra told Socialist Worker in April, 'It was like hell working there. I suffered racial abuse and racial discrimination. Every time I reported the matter to management they were hostile.'
