Record Jaguar Land Rover sales testament to the workforce, says Unite

12 January 2014

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has posted record sales for 2013 with almost half a million cars sold worldwide.

Unite assistant general secretary, Tony Burke said: "Jaguar Land Rover is a remarkable manufacturing success story.

"The company faced serious problems prior to 2008, but our members in Unite and the company worked together to turn JLR's fortunes around.

"JLR continues to take on staff, including 600 new staff at their new engine plant in the West Midlands. The company also remains committed to taking on apprentices as well.

"The manufacturer's fantastic performance is testament to the workforce. Unite union representatives are working with employers, such as JLR, for quality skilled jobs in UK manufacturing."
