Jim Cunningham, who represents Coventry South for the ruling Labour Party: "Mr Tata confirmed that there were not plans to move any of the UK plants and that no redundancies were planned. Instead, they will be increasing the workforce in the research areas. They're going to keep Whitley and going to keep Gaydon."

Don't Give Up on Jag ; CUTS: Former Car Boss in Plea to New Owners After Job Axe Shock atWhitley and Gaydon
Full story: http://www.istockanalyst.com/article/vi ... 40423.html

"FORMER Jaguar chairman Geoffrey Robinson MP called on the Big Cat's new owners to invest and look beyond the recession.
He was speaking, following Jaguar Land Rover's announcement that 850 agency workers are to lose their jobs across the West Midlands.
The Telegraph revealed yesterday that Whitley in Coventry and Gaydon in south Warwickshire would bear the brunt of the cuts.
Mr Robinson, Labour MP for Coventry North West said: "What Jaguar needs is engineering resources. The key issue that arises from this is: 'Are they committed to serious development and putting the money in to do that.
"They bought it for a cheap price and it's a superb asset. The key thing is we want to know what their plans are for investment. I want them to preserve the skills base at Jaguar and look to the future. They've got to look beyond a year's recession."................................."

Jaguar Land Rover cuts 450 staff
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7828201.stm

"Jaguar Land Rover has announced it is cutting 450 staff.

Three hundred managers will be made redundant while 150 salaried agency staff will also lose their jobs.

The firm, which was bought by Tata from Ford for £1.7bn last year, said the action was to combat the credit crunch and a "severe reduction in demand".

Based in Gaydon, Warwickshire, it employs about 15,000 people in Castle Bromwich, Coventry and Solihull in the West Midlands and Halewood, Merseyside..................

Jaguar Land Rover chief executive David Smith said he did not expect sales to return to normal levels "for some time".

He said the firm needed to become more efficient so it could invest in new models and technology when the market improved.

He added: "It is only right and proper that our response to the unavoidable impact of the credit crunch and a severe reduction in demand includes actions across all grades and functions in the company.

"It is critical that Jaguar Land Rover becomes a more efficient and dynamic organisation to face up to the challenges that we will meet in the years ahead."........................

Last November, the firm axed 850 agency IT and engineering staff and said it was in talks with the government over a possible bail out.

Tata has also said it will inject tens of millions of pounds into the company.

The annual Christmas break was extended last year due to the fall in demand.

Land Rover sales were down by 30% throughout 2008 although Jaguar's sales rose by almost 9% over the same period, which the company put down to its new XF model launched last year..................."

Ultimatum handed to JLR unions
http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/c ... -22732519/

"THOUSANDS of Jaguar Land Rover workers have less than a fortnight before a crucial vote on whether to accept a pay freeze and other cuts – or risk up to 1,800 jobs being axed.

Unions at JLR have two weeks to consider demands for job cuts and cutbacks in pay and working conditions. As the Telegraph revealed, the firm, which employs 16,000 in the West Midlands and Merseyside, will axe 300 management positions and cut agency personnel by 150. But workers said shop stewards have been warned of a new round of cutbacks being drawn up to avert up to 1,800 job losses – including a proposed four-day week, reduction in shift payments, scrapping holiday bonuses, a pay freeze, an increase in pension contributions from employees and 500 more voluntary redundancies.

JLR admitted it was facing “one of the worst recessions the world has experienced”.

* Yesterday the Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham began two weeks of non-production.

Bosses said the 2,000 workers at its Whitley and Gaydon sites would not be affected by the halt..."
