Rebecca Long Bailey responds to further job losses at Vauxhall

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the announcement of further job losses at Vauxhall, said:

“This is devastating news for workers and their families in the run-up to Christmas and is especially shocking considering the car maker’s recent return to profit.

“Bosses must now urgently meet with unions to ensure that there are no compulsory redundancies and work to provide long-term certainty to workers and their families during this difficult time.

“This distracted Government cannot sit back and allow for the decimation of such a vital industry with its highly skilled workforce, the loss of which will be felt not just locally but nationally.”
