Redundant Ford employee Kevin Hayes to stand in European Elections

Daily Echo: Kevin Hayes Kevin Hayes

HE spent three decades putting together iconic Transit vans and is now fighting for the political power to safeguard their future at the Southampton plant.

On the day he walked out the factory, with 550 fellow workers who have been made redundant, grandfather Kevin Hayes, 57, declared he will be standing as a Save the Transit candidate at the upcoming European elections.

The motor giant blamed this wave of job cuts on the recession and a drop in demand but had already announced plans to export the Transit and use the downsized Swaythling factory solely to produce chassis cabs.

These plans were pushed back due to the recession.

Dad-of-two, Kevin, from Bassett, said: “I am standing to continue the campaign that has been running ever since the Daily Echo revealed the plant was under threat all those months ago.

“Just because I’m no longer there it doesn’t mean Ford is not important to me, the remaining workers and the whole area.

“I think Ford bosses are still weighing up the future of the Southampton plant and if we lose the Transit the factory just won’t be able to stay open.

“I hope that my standing on this one issue will make the message more powerful and highlight other problems affecting the motor industry.”

He went on to say it was important to keep fighting to ensure the future of the remaining jobs.

He will be standing for the South East region for the NO2EU – Yes to Democracy coalition.

His political aspirations emerged yesterday as half the Ford workforce – with more than 14,000 years’ experience – handed in their uniforms, shook hands with their managers and walked out the gate for the last time.

It was an emotional day for workers who had taken voluntary redundancy or opted for early retirement and many took some time to have one last look around.

Stefan Jerabek, 56, of Gosport, left after 31 years, and said: “I feel empty inside.”

“It’s not like going on holiday because you are not thinking how you are going to cram lots of things into a small space of time, it is stretching out in front of you with no end.”

Bruce Golding-Coney, 52, of Christchurch, left after 30 years, and said: “I’m one of the lucky ones because I don’t have to work.

“I feel sorry for those who still have to work.”

The Daily Echo exclusively revealed that 500 jobs would be axed in February.

Ford bosses claim they are committed to the future of Southampton plant but only as a site to manufacture chassis cabs.

Most people can't see how membership of the EU has decimated Local jobs.
Ford is transferring to Turkey because the EU customs union allows them to build Transits there, outside the EU, cheaply and import them in again without Tariffs. Pirelli went to Spain subsidised by an EU regional development grant. The Eastleigh Railway works were privatised out of exsistence by EU procurement directives - a fate that will soon befall our postal services.
Over the last 20 years the South East has seen jobs, investment and industry siphoned off by the EU.
Its time to stop the rot and I for one will be voting NO2EU in the forthcoming Euro Elections. Find out more at NO2EU.com.

There is better way to deal with the menace of the EU, that is to simply pull out of the EU and start dealing independently with the whole world on equal basis, rather than trying to exploit it by staying in this basically club of bankers and gangsters.

You are obviously unaware that the RMT very publicly disaffliated itself from the Labour Party a little while ago because they believed it no longer represented the aspiraions of ordinary working men and women.
Instead of using the political levy to support New Labour they have decided to use it to sponser real working class candidates in this campaign.
Your comments regarding wage cuts are equally off the mark - some of the contractors at southampton plant have already had pay cuts of up to 40% and all Ford workers have had at least a 17% in loss of shft pay.
There ARE enough orders to keep Southampton busy except they are being sent to Ford's EU sponsored sweatshop in Turkey which is subsidised by YOU the
British taxpayer through EU aid (even though they are not in the EU - they still get EU aid).
10% of all the tax you pay goes to the EU which in turn helps Multi National companies by use it exploiting workers in Eastern europe in order to drive down pay and conditions in western Europe - as Ford is clearly doing here.
We think this is wrong.

Too much competition, especially when VW produce in Eastern Europe and other stuff is made in Korea. Wait until cars roll in from India and China, no plant in Europe could compete with them.

YOUR FORD JOB IS BEING AXED FOR ONE REASON

Under the EU-Turkey Customs Union, Ford can export your job to Turkey to exploit cheap labour and then import Turkish vans (and parts) back into Britain without paying a penny in tariffs. That’s how the EU has sold you out.

By exporting your job to Turkey, Ford will increase its profit. To make a profit is necessary, but to make an UNFAIR profit is “profiteering”. All definitions of “profiteering” involve “unfairness”. So is it “unfair” for Ford to export your job to Turkey?

A Turkish worker might argue that it IS fair to export your job to Turkey. I have even heard some British people arguing that to enrich the lives of Turkish workers by exporting your job to Turkey is both fair and charitable.

But such views are misplaced and immoral. There is no “charity” in taking our possessions, rights, jobs etc. against our will and giving them to others. That is THEFT not charity. We must blame successive Conservative and Labour governments for this appalling theft and betrayal since 1973.

I therefore accuse Ford of profiteering and betraying Britain and I ACCUSE THE EU OF THEFT OF JOBS. I call on you to show your anger in the forthcoming elections on June 4th, by voting tactically for any party which supports leaving the EU or is committed to offering British voters a referendum on our EU “membership”.

All definitions of “profiteering” involve “unfairness”. So is it “unfair” for Ford to export your job to Turkey? A Turkish worker might argue that it IS fair to export your job to Turkey. I have even heard some British people arguing that to enrich the lives of Turkish workers by exporting your job to Turkey is both fair and charitable. But such views are misplaced and immoral. There is no “charity” in taking our possessions, rights, jobs etc. against our will and giving them to others. That is THEFT not charity. We must blame successive Conservative and Labour governments for this appalling theft and betrayal since 1973. I therefore accuse Ford of profiteering and betraying Britain and I ACCUSE THE EU OF THEFT OF JOBS. I call on you to show your anger in the forthcoming elections on June 4th, by voting tactically for any party which supports leaving the EU or is committed to offering British voters a referendum on our EU “membership”.

OUR CHILDREN’S JOBS IN RETURN FOR CHEAP FOREIGN GOODS

WHEN I WERE A LAD in 1979 (yawn!) and Margaret Thatcher was voted into office, rumour had it many of the Unions were riddled with KGB agents bent on destroying British industry and that’s why there were so many strikes.

True or not, there’s no doubt those strikes helped destroy huge amounts of our industrial base by driving custom abroad, and what they failed to destroy, the EU is finishing off – that, coupled with our insatiable greed (I’m alright Jack) – has allowed fat cat globalist entrepreneurs to exchange the remains of our manufacturing base for nothing more than cheap foreign goods.

United we stand – divided we fall!

And united we stood, with our hands by our sides, looking innocently up into the blue, whistling tuneless melodies, while fat-cat globalist entrepreneurs destroyed our industrial base around our feet (which we can claim we couldn’t see because we were looking up at the time) and palmed us off with what they said were “cheap” foreign goods.

So was it a fair exchange: Our children’s jobs in return for cheap foreign goods?

A lot of people point out that wages are a lot cheaper in Korea, Turkey, India etc.
The wage cost element of a Transit built in Southampton is about £380 against a vehicle that will retail for about £18,000. What we are talking about is SHEER GREED by motor manufacteres who want to see the labour shrunk from £380 to about £100. It costs less to produce the same van in turkey but do Ford sell them here for less? No.
We need to protect our industry through selective tarrifs. Ford would still build Vans in the UK - their biggest market- if a tarrf on imports reduced the cost advantage.
We can't do that because it's against EU rules.
(Although the French have stuck 2 fingers up to it to protect Renault workers)

there was no mess till after 1979. by the time labour left office the british war dept was nearly paid up, all thacther had to do was sit it out for the remaining 4 years of the recession that started in 1978. but she could not do that she wanted to line her friends pockets, and made the recession last longer than it should off and push us deeper in to recession and increase the dept we was in, when she took over office there was only about 1million unemployed, a the exports was greater than the imports, with in 3 years off her in office unemployment was over 4 million so she started to cook the books to make it look good by not counting any one that was unemployed for more tham 6mts and there was other things she did not count. the imports became greater than our exports increasing the national dept to the state where we where nearly bankrupt, and still paying for it. she change the banking laws and what was the first thing she do, she moves her money to lichtenstein bank and this only the tip off the ice berg there is much more damage she done ie education health service ect ect ect ect ect the list is to long to go though, so strikes is only a small price to pay for and it did not effect are oversea buyers they still got there goods because off the surplus stock pile this all change in the 80's with our manufactory base gone we was not producing goods for export, the only thing that is saving us from total bankruptcies is the what is know has the hidden trade. but this has only slowed it down and giving us time to correct the 80's government errors whitch the labour government has not done all they been doing is working for the multinationals do a tory job but better.

I left the UK because I could see this coming. The depth and breadth of it was wholly unpredictable but nonetheless inevitable. I have been through the last recession when Britain was pulled out of the pipe and I saw good men lose their homes and relationships smashed by political decisions they had no say in.

The EU is 6 times larger than the US and governed by many diverse and prosaic leaders. The US were instrumental in sucking in the rest of the world but equally were the nation that were coming out first.

Barak Obama is a good and positive President and in his first 100 days prevented global financial catastrophe. It has cost me a lot of money, time and effort to be here and I am doing ok at it too.

Your snide vitiole is unfounded and a positive indication that you just do not understand your own country's politics and economy.

Brown could not govern a tea party and his own Cabinet are now openly echoing that point.

So what are your options? Sit on your hands and spit at those that are doing just a bit better or get out there and do the same, but where? Europe? No chance!

Many subscribers cant speak English so forget learning another Euro language. What about Australia? They're in the boondocks too so then that really only leaves a few others. Hey! Guess what? The US is a good choice.

The Land of the free is not 'FREE' you have to work hard and jump through a lot of hoops but it sure pays well in a time when one job in Soton has 6 applicants (and climbing). Is it going to get better? In a year or two maybe.

Will it get worse? YES! A ship without a Captain will hit many rocks before it ultimately sinks below the waves and all those onboard. That does not include me.

Is my leaving the dower shores of England a contributory factor in its demise? No - Nor will ever be but look out you windows and see the huge exodus of academics and specialist skills leaving to do much of what I am doing.

The UK is done for and that is what I believe and so am here and staying here.

If it goes sour then I will go elsewhere. I have made enough to go anywhere and do it all again cos I have a love of working and making money and thats what it takes.

Your survival rate will be enhanced if you forgot about nursing the dead and dying industies and go where the new and growing work is and you dont need me to tell you that isnt Europe. So spit away but you'll be hard pushed to state my philosophy as wrong.

You are right Peter, Ford has betrayed Britain.
The UK is Fords biggest Market outside of the USA. Germany is one of Fords smallest markets as Germans tend to buy German cars.In fact Britons buy more Ford Cars then France, Italy and Germany put together. How strange then that in 2000 Ford moved it European HQ from Dagenham to Cologne. Should we then be surprised to learn that Ford Europes new German bosses then moved production of the UK's biggest selling car - the Fiesta from the UK to (can you guess yet)...Cologne, even though it was more expensive to produce there?
They then proceeded to share out Ford UK's work to other European countries so that NO Ford cars are made here any more, just the SWB Van (which of course is going to Turkey.)
Anyone interested in the history of the Ford Cologne plant and the politcal ideaology of some of its post war directors ought to google the terms 'BBC FORD NAZI COLOGNE'.
An enlightening read.
