Diesel and uncertainty about Europe hammers car workers.
UNITE says UK car workers' livelihoods are being caught in the crosshairs of the Government's botched handling of Brexit, economic uncertainty and ministers' demonisation of diesel.
Unite national officer Des Quinn said: "Unite will be scrutinising the business case for these global job cuts, and expects that any UK redundancies will be on a voluntary basis amongst affected employees.
Des. "Jaguar Land Rover workers have had to endure a great deal of uncertainty over recent months as they continue to work hard to ensure the carmaker remains a global leader. With record levels of new investment and models set to come on stream in its UK factories, we look for Jaguar Land Rover to continue to be a global success and the jewel in Britain's manufacturing crown. But the UK government must play its part, too. Britain's car workers have been caught in the crosshairs of the government's botched handling of Brexit, mounting economic uncertainty and ministers' demonisation of diesel, which, along with the threat of a 'no deal' Brexit, is damaging consumer confidence. "Government ministers need to wake up and start doing more to support UK's car workers and their colleagues in the supply chain if Jaguar Land Rover's recent success is to continue."
