JVC jobs under threat

JVC has announced its intention to close its East Kilbride plant, which makes LCD TVs, moving production to Poland in July, with the loss of over 300 jobs.

UNITE has quite rightly put out a damning press release, but what else are we going to do?

After 11 years of New Labour, we still have feeble employment rights that allow companies to quickly and cheaply throw us on the scrap heap in the pursuit of higher profits.

We need to campaign for stronger rights, but also use our industrial strength to protect jobs rather than merely relying on the law.
