Peugeot to meet unions over job cuts

Peugeot said it will meet with worker representatives on Thursday to discuss plans to cut 850 jobs at its Ryton plant, near Coventry.

The Transport & General Workers Union (TGWU), and Amicus said they will meet with Peugeot's UK management.

Peugeot said rising competition in the small car sector and a dip in sales of its 206 model had led to the job cuts.

Trade unions have vowed to oppose compulsory redundancies at Ryton, which employs about 2,800 workers.

The company said it hoped to cut jobs through voluntary redundancies, early retirement and redeployment of staff at other Peugeot sites.
