Meeting over Ford pensions fails to reach agreement
A ROW over pensions is still raging after union leaders and Ford bosses failed to reach an agreement.
Over 150 workers descended on the companies UK headquarters to show the strength of their feeling.
A group of retired staff from Southampton were among the number protesting proposals to calculate pension inflation on CPI (consumer price index) as opposed to the higher RPI (retail prices index).
The protest at Warley, Essex, took place this morning and another meeting has been scheduled for April 4.
