West Midlands Car Maker 'Aston Martin' To Make Nearly 300 Job Cuts

The West Midlands car maker Aston Martin has confirmed it's going to get rid of nearly 300 jobs at it's plant in Warwickshire.

The company, which had around two thousand workers at the start of this year, say they've have started consulting with employees and will be working to minimise the risk of compulsory redundancies.

Bosses say they will do this by offering early retirement and voluntary redundancies.

It comes just days before the next James Bond film, Spectre,  is released which features one of their luxury cars.

Unite, the UK's largest union, says it's opposed to the decision to cut jobs and say they are now in talks with bosses to try and reduce the number being made.
