Job cuts at Rolls-Royce branded ‘unnecessary’
Rolls-Royce will cut 320 jobs, mainly from their Derby and Bristol sites
More than 300 jobs will go at Rolls-Royce, with the bulk of cuts expected to hit the firm’s Derby and Bristol sites.
The aerospace giant came under fire from union Unite who described the loss of 320 jobs as "unnecessary", but Rolls-Royce said the number of people it employed in the UK will remain constant or grow in the coming year.
The announcement comes under a month since the firm announced 378 job losses in its defence arm and the closing of their plant at Ansty, near Coventry.
A statement said: "However, in order to increase production and to stay competitive the mix of our workforce needs to change, with more people in frontline engineering and production jobs and fewer in support functions.
"Wherever possible we will redeploy people and we will seek to avoid compulsory redundancies. Last year, we recruited more than 300 people on to our graduate schemes and will recruit more. We also took on another 300 apprentices and that number will grow in the year ahead."
But Unite's national officer Ian Waddell was unimpressed.
He said: "Rolls-Royce is a massive success story in UK manufacturing, making record profits and with a booming order book. The company needs the support of its employees to continue this success story and fulfil its commitments to its customers.
"Another round of redundancies in these circumstances, on top of the 400 job losses proposed in its defence business, is a criminal waste of talent that will create insecurity and damage morale in the workforce."
He added: "We want Rolls-Royce to prosper as this will provide job security for current employees and future job opportunities for our young people.
"I urge Rolls-Royce to abandon this plan and talk to the union about measures to further improve competitiveness without cutting loyal staff. The company does not need to disrupt the workforce in this way when it is demonstrating global success and creating huge profits."
