City rallies to support Jaguar

A huge rally is to be held as part of a union campaign to save production of Jaguar cars in Coventry.

The event, organised by unions the Transport and General Workers Union and Amicus, will be held in the city on November 27.

The unions said they had received strong support to keep production of the luxury vehicles at Coventry's Browns Lane site. Tony Woodley, general secretary of the TGWU, said: "Coventry has a proud heritage of quality car making and we want to ensure it has a long future."

Derek Simpson, general secretary of Amicus, said: ‘Jaguar is synonymous with Coventry and vice versa. "I know people will turn out in their thousands to show their support for Browns Lane and for the other Jaguar workers facing redundancy.

"This will be a fantastic show of strength and solidarity against the decision to end Jaguar production in the city."
