Dialogue the only way forward in Visteon dispute – Sinn Féin

20 April, 2009

Sinn Féin west Belfast MLA Paul Maskey has this afternoon said that dialogue is the only way forward in resolving the outstanding issues for the protesting Visteon workers.   Mr Maskey spoke during questions to the Minister of Enterprise Trade and Investment and stated that any such move to remove the workers would be a regrettable step and will not assist in bringing a resolution to the dispute. The Minister, Arlene Foster agreed with Paul Maskey’s assessment.   Speaking from the Assembly Mr Maskey said,   “News has broken this afternoon that the administrators for Visteon are taking legal steps to remove those protesters still occupying the plant. This is a regrettable step and will not go any way to resolving the outstanding issues.   I welcome the recognition from Arlene Foster that this is not the way to go in the time ahead. Dialogue is needed to ensure that the protesting workers and their families are given a fair deal.” CRÍOCH
