Astra production stopped at Ellesmere Port

About 240 jobs are under threat at the US-owned TDS Automotive Logistics, based next to the Vauxhall car assembly plant at Ellesmere Port.

A statement from TDS said the company was discussing cutting the jobs in order to move from three to two shifts; the Transport and General Workers' Union and Amicus reportedly rejected the company’s proposed redundancy terms.

Workers staged an unofficial protest, downing tools and temporarily stopping component supplies to Ellesmere Port.
