UK / Rolls-Royce: Nearly 400 workers at risk

Aerospace firm Rolls-Royce has said it is in consultation with unions over job cuts at one of its plants, after a trade union said nearly 400 workers are at risk.

Unite reported earlier today that Rolls-Royce had sent an internal memo to its staff to detail its proposals.

The plan puts 378 jobs at risk at Ansty, a plant near Coventry in the Midlands, according to the union.

“We are in consultation with trade unions over reductions in our defence workforce at Ansty,” Rolls-Royce said in a statement.

“We hope to achieve this without compulsory redundancies.”

Unite also said Rolls-Royce is proposing to shut the plant in the next few years, but the union put the blame on the Government’s cuts to the national defence budget.

The statement by Rolls-Royce said: “Ansty also conducts Civil Aerospace business which is not affected.

“In a large and complex company there is a continuing need to align resource and customer demand. Overall Group employment at Rolls-Royce remains fairly constant.”
