Vauxhall workers start strike action

Vauxhall
workers have started industrial action to protest at plans to close the firm’s
Luton plant in 2002 with the loss of 2,000 jobs.

T&G
union members at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant working the night shift downed
tools at 2am.

The
action is expected to continue today at the Cheshire plant and T&G members
on the morning and evening shifts at Vauxhall’s Luton factory are due to join
the strike action today.

Bill
Morris, the T&G’s general secretary, commented, “The T&G’s action
demonstrates our members’ determination to keep up the campaign, press Vauxhall
to honour the agreement they signed with the workforce and to maintain car
production at the Luton plant.”
