Visteon pension deal success welcome - Maskey

2 April, 2014 - by Paul Maskey

Sinn Féin MP for West Belfast Paul Maskey has commended the Visteon workers on achieving a victory in their long running battle for pension entitlements with the company.

Speaking today Mr Maskey said:

“I want to commend the former Visteon workers who, after five years, have achieved a great victory following their long battle for pension entitlements. 

“I had the pleasure to meet many of them and lobby for them over the last number of years since the closure of the site in west Belfast. 

“I have spoken on the phone to some of them today who are in London prior to this announcement. They have shown determination and commitment from day one to get their rights justified. They have not faltered and as a result have seen their campaign vindicated.  

“This result will send out a clear message to global businesses that they cannot treat employees with contempt as the workers will not allow that to happen.

“The workers have taken on one of the biggest companies in the world. They can take great pleasure in the fact that they have won.”
