Job cuts likely at Vauxhall

The
owner of the Vauxhall car company in the UK, is planning to cut 3,000 jobs
across Europe, according to
reports.

General
Motors (GM) will close the equivalent of two car-making plants in terms of
production capacity, reports The Daily Telegraph.

The
company said it would decide on the cuts, covering Opel/Vauxhall, Saab and its partnership with Fiat,
by December.

The
report follows news last week that GM’s biggest rival, US
car maker Ford, would cut 1,150 jobs at its Coventry Jaguar assembly plant.

Vauxhall
suffered its third straight month of weak sales in August as its ageing vehicle
line-up lost out to new models from competitors.
