Aston Martin shutdown extended

Aston Martin shutdown extended http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpres ... 3nekZtlv8Q

Luxury car company Aston Martin is to extend its planned Christmas shutdown for another two weeks, it has been announced.

Production staff at the company's plant at Gaydon, Warwickshire, were due to return to work on January 5 after the festive closure.

But production at Gaydon, where the DBS, DB9 and V8 Vantage models are made, will now not start again until January 19.

Asked if there were likely to be any job losses in the future, an Aston Martin spokesman said: "We are keeping the economic situation under constant review."

The company is the latest car manufacturer to announce cuts in production at a time when new car sales are falling fast.

Honda, Jaguar Land Rover and Mini are among the firms which are scaling back on manufacturing to cope with the big dip in demand.

Aston Martin to axe a third of jobs as crunch bites

Aston Martin Statement

GAYDON, December 1, 2008: Aston Martin and its Trade Union partners have today begun consultation on a range of cutbacks to reflect the current downturn in the world economy and the corresponding fall in car sales. It is hoped to do this by minimising the impact on employees as far as possible, but the possibility of up to 300 permanent and a similar number of temporary job losses cannot be ruled out.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez said: “Like other premium car brands, Aston Martin has been forced to take action to respond to the unprecedented downturn in the global economy. These are regrettable but necessary measures in the extraordinary market conditions we all now face.

“Overall we remain confident that the Aston Martin brand is the strongest it has ever been – with dedicated design, engineering and manufacturing facilities and an award-winning product range, we remain well positioned for the upturn in the economy.”

Now a union is threatening industrial action.
Who do they think is going to pay there wages when nobody is buying the cars they make.
Aston Martin have many hundreds of unsold cars.
So if the union strike happens it will be good news for them.
They can get on with selling the stockpiled cars and not have to pay the wages of the strikers.

I never cease to amaze at how stupid unions are, they destroyed manufacturing in this country with restrictive practices, industrial action, unreasonable pay demands and unwillingness to increase productivity.

The story is here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/cove ... 774489.stm

"A union says it has not ruled out industrial action over Aston Martin's "unacceptable" plans to cut 600 jobs.

The luxury car firm, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire, said it needed to cut 300 full-time and 300 temporary jobs because of falling sales.

Des Quinn, from the union Unite, said it would consult members following a meeting between union officials and firm managers.

The company has said the cuts resulted from "extraordinary market conditions"............................................"
