Unite Wales has written to all its members at the Ford Bridgend engine plant. In the letter which members will receive by post and e-mail today, Unite sets out in detail its concerns over the future of the plant and the key questions that Ford must answer.
Following the dramatic cut in investment for the Dragon engine product it is Unites view that without new investment and product lines the Bridgend plant faces a very limited life span.
Andy Richards, Unite Wales Secretary commented:
“Bridgend Engine plant has a world class workforce and the plant deserves to have a long term secure future. Ford must end the silence and set out how it envisages Bridgend playing a key role in its global production strategy.
Unite will never roll over and accept the slow demise and ultimate death of the plant. We are calling upon Ford, at the very highest levels of the company, to talk with us about how we can work together to secure a sustainable way forward for the plant, that builds upon its enormous strengths”.
