Visteon Union Fall-Out As Talks Convene

While talks are expected to begin in London later to resolve the dispute at three Visteon sites, there's news of division among trade unions.

As national union officials are to meet Visteon executives, Belfast representatives said they were not being brought in for the discussions.

They said they would have to wait outside while the talks were held. Belfast's Unite convenor John Maguire claimed he had been "excluded".

Workers in Belfast, Basildon and Enfield have been protesting after being laid off by the firm, which has gone into administration in the UK.
