The Amicus union claims to have successfully reversed plans by Ford Flight, Ford’s employee travel service in the UK, to force its staff to take a pay cut by threatening to outsource the operation.

Ford UK workers are currently paid double time for working Sunday nights. The company had approached Ford Flight staff demanding that they take a cut in overtime rates. The company maintained that if the staff refused they would outsource the work to a third party.

According to the union, Ford Flight staff received a “tremendous amount of support” from their colleagues elsewhere in Ford’s UK operations, who had raised concerns about the proposed changes.

Amicus regional secretary John Hellyer said: “This is a great result for staff working for Ford Flight. The staff started the week knowing that it’s back to business as usual.”
