Hi All, I served my time in the Woodvale Card Shop in the mid 60's, My journeyman teacher's last name was Black. Don't recall his first name right now.

Just came across the Mackies Men of Steel link, brought back a lot of memories. Thanks for posting it.  It was so nice to see Jackie Geddis and others telling stories from way back then.

Hi all,

New here, found this thread through a Google search.

My father, Joseph (Joe) Crozier, worked at Mackies from 1974 to 1990. Does anybody remember him?

Anyway, he moved my mom and us kids to the Netherlands in 1991. Lately, we have been wondering the status of the pension my dad built up during his years at Mackies. As we live in the Netherlands, it has been difficult for us to find out exactly what happened to the pension scheme. As he is reaching pension age (62 next week), we would like to know what we can do to make sure the pension he built up finds its way back to him.

Does anyone know what happenend to pension scheme and how we can contact them? Has anyone else contacted the scheme?

Hopefully, someone can help us. Thanks in advance!

Apparently when Mackies went bust in 1999 the Pension schemes were wound up. A friend of mines Son who worked in Mackies from 1968 to 1983 made an enquiry and was told that because they could not find his name, he was not entitled to anything. :( :( There is a Government scheme for tracing lost pensions, try Goggling.

See in the paper the Innovation Centre ( Old Woodvale Factory ) are looking for Ex employees to get in touch about working in the firm as they are putting on some sort of exhibition! Get the old photographs out!
