Agency staff at Halewood Jaguar plant given notice.

FIFTY-FIVE agency staff at Halewood's Jaguar Land Rover plant had their contracts terminated today.

Manpower agency served its staff at the Knowsley car plant with one week's notice.

The workers were recruited to bolster the plant's production of its new Land Rover Freelander model almost two years ago.

Manpower staff were at the site today to officially give notice to their agency team on assignment at Halewood throughout the course of the day.

A Manpower spokeswoman said: "We can confirm Jaguar Land Rover has reviewed their resourcing needs at the Halewood plant and have decided to make some changes which will impact on the number of Manpower employees working on assignment at the site."

Last month the ECHO reported fears that 95 car plant staff could be set to lose their jobs, split between 55 Manpower workers and 40 temporary Jaguar Land Rover staff.

The car giant employs about 120 temporary workers.

B ut the spokeswoman said today: "This announcement does not affect Jaguar Land Rover temporary staff."

Car managers warned that more non-production days could be announced in the coming months.
