BAE have called a meeting with union representatives regarding the 845 job losses at the Brough site. It's the first time the company has invited the representative to speak at their London head office. Last Wednesday the entire Brough workforce voted to lobby outside the AGM in May.
The entire workforce at BAE Systems in Brough has voted to take their fight for jobs to the company's shareholders at the AGM in May. The defence giant plans to end manufacturing in East Yorkshire - with the loss of 850 jobs. The unions claim the firm's case to shut the plant is flawed.
Union members are meeting later today to discuss their future. Defence giant BAE systems confirmed earlier this month that it's to end manufacturing at Brough. 845 jobs are being lost at the site.
