The fact is that I have never had a private meeting with Lansman about anything in my life, let alone on this alleged scheme. Why the untruth? Watson wants to control the Unite election. He is not ready to leave the matter in the hands of the ordinary working people who make up our union. He has been masterminding a nasty tabloid-style campaign against me - standard fare in political elections, alas, but something new for the trade union movement.

Len McCluskey quotes

What is being said at the moments by PSA Peugeot Citroen is that they are going to honour all of our agreements. Now, that means that the current model at [the UK plants] Ellesmere Port and Luton will continue. But, the real challenge to us is to make certain that we get new models, and that is about going forward, making sure that we have a future – a long-term future for our plants.

While initial discussions with the PSA Group have been relatively positive, our priority now is to ensure a long-term future for our plants and the tens of thousands of workers depending on them.

Unite requested that BMW lift its deadline for the pension scheme's threatened closure so that talks could be conducted in a meaningful way. Unfortunately that perfectly reasonable request has been refused by BMW bosses, who are in danger of miscalculating the growing anger among its UK workforce. BMW bosses would do well to heed the growing sense of betrayal over their broken pension promises, which have already seen 96pc of workers saying they would take industrial action in a consultative ballot.

He talked in terms of not being here to shut plants. That's not his nature.

It does seem as if Brexitis a factor in this decision as GM does rely heavily on its links throughout the EU supply chain. Without a shadow of doubt, U.K. car plants must be offered the same assurances as those given by the government to Nissan.

Unite will work tirelessly to defend them, to get this dispute solved and to win them the fair and decent treatment these workers deserve.

It is a tragedy because these redundancies would have been needless if the government really cared about British manufacturing and British skills.

The problem is the impositions that have been placed on them (the crew) by British Airways management. These are impositions that we believe are not necessary.
