Vauxhall Future Secure In Luton
Over a thousand jobs have been safe-guarded and Vauxhall workers in Luton are celebrating
Vauxhall has secured an agreement with Renault to build the next generation of Vivaro vans at it's Luton Plant.
The announcement was made by Vauxhall this afternoon.
Already the news is being welcomed by unions.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said: "This is fantastic news. It secures the future of Vauxhall in Luton and puts to rest any uncertainty over jobs. Without a new model Luton would have closed, instead the plant has work until at least 2020 and 1500 jobs have been secured. The efforts of Vauxhall’s chairman, Nick Reilly were pivotal in securing an agreement with Renault and we are extremely grateful for the part he played. This decision is also down to the hard work of the workforce and savings they made."
