BBC Northern Ireland Special on the Belfast Visteon Workers
You may remember that I flew to Belfast three weeks ago to play a gig at the Visteon factory canteen.
I was playing for the Ford Visteon Workers who were occupying the factory.
I felt deeply honoured and proud to be there, providing music to people who had been betrayed by their bosses and decided to fight back.
They had been given 6 minutes notice that they were being made redundant by Ford. But were getting no redundancy pay and no pensions.
BBC Northern Ireland has just produced a special on their plight. Please watch it.
This is the boss’s loyalty.
There’s a short 20 second animated bit at the start before the programme begins.
Thanks to Dan McCallister for letting me know about the programme.
Victory to the Visteon Workers – betrayed by Ford.
