Workers employed by car manufacturer Ford across the UK struck on Monday 18 June in a battle against pensions cuts.
Bosses want to close the company’s final salary pension scheme to new starters and move them onto a career average scheme, as well as cutting pay.
Unite officer Roger Maddison said: “Our staff members will not stand by and allow Ford to create a two tier workforce on pay and pensions. To date Ford has failed to make any genuine attempts to resolve this dispute. Unless there is a last minute change of heart from the company Ford faces a national strike this Monday.
“We fiercely oppose the closure of Ford's final salary scheme to new entrants because we believe ultimately Ford will try to close the entire scheme.”
Ford is attempting to make the cuts despite its UK sales figures being the company’s best across Europe.
