Luxury car maker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) told CNBC-TV18 that it has entered wage negotiations with its workers at its UK based manufacturing plants. The auto major says that it is negotiating directly with its workers, reports Ronojoy Banerjee.
JLR has entered into wage negotiations with the workers of its UK facilities and as part of that settlement the workers have put forth some very key demands.
The basic fear the workers seem to be having at this stage is because the company is looking to set manufacturing facilities outside the UK it could lead to some sort of a job loss in the United Kingdom.
The company is looking at setting up a new manufacturing facility in China. The company has also recently set up an assembly plant at Pune, which assembles the Freelander.
The company is also looking at a similar arrangement in Brazil. However, company officials believe there is no question of any kind of a job loss.
Recently, the company made an announcement of setting up an engine plant at Birmingham which they said was going to create upto 1,000 jobs. Hence, there was no question of a job loss.
JLR however, did not want to specifically comment on the type of wage negotiations they are having with the workers, but they ruled out any job loss.
