Amicus on TRW job losses in Pontypool

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 8, 2006) -

Amicus' Regional Officer, Graham Smith, said:

"This is disappointing news on the back of redundancies by TRW last year in an area where we can ill afford to lose jobs.

"The company is citing the ending of Toyota contract but we had hoped that new business wins by the plant would negate the need for any redundancies.

"We'll be working closely with the company to try and ensure that the cuts are achieved voluntarily but this still represents a considerable loss to Wales's manufacturing base."
