Ford has had an on-going, voluntary dialogue with MPs and on two occasions has briefed UK politicians on its position regarding Visteon pensions. Both meetings addressed matters that have been raised by MPs on behalf of their constituents.
A legal claim connected with the Visteon pensions’ issue was filed against Ford in January 2011 and a court date has been set to hear the case. The legal process limits the level of engagement that is possible on this issue but Ford has responded to letters both from MPs and from Welsh Assembly Members.
Ford’s position on this issue has remained unchanged. While Ford recognises the severity of the situation for former Visteon UK employees, Visteon became an independent company in 2000 and was responsible for its own business decisions.
Ford has fulfilled both its legal and moral responsibilities to former Visteon employees.
