Union deal with Magna Vauxhall will mean no UK forced redundancies

Unite, the union, says it has agreed a deal with Magna to avoid any compulsory redundancies at Vauxhall plants.

It wants to protect jobs at Ellesmere Port and Luton.

The union said it had agreed to a two-year pay freeze and other cost-saving measures in return for no forced job cuts.

Magna declined to comment on the union's announcement.

The deal "gives both plants job security and a future through to 2013, providing a good basis for a long-term future beyond that", said Tony Woodley, joint general secretary of Unite.
