GMB Regional Officer, Dominic Hicks, said:
"Despite their promises that relocating in Birmingham was an option it is clear that the company have been disingenuous with us and more importantly its loyal workforce."
"We will now seek an urgent meeting with the company to discuss this announcement in more detail. We will make sure the company meets all its legal obligations on the decision to shut the Erdington site."
GMB have said they are 'devastated' with the decision by Dunlop tyres to relocate the manufacturing of motor sport tyres abroad.
In a statement, GMB have responded to the announcement and feel the company have been 'disingenuous' after several meetings took place discussing possible relocation to another site in Birmingham.
Dominic Hicks, GMB Regional officer, said:
"GMB is devastated at the announcement made by Goodyear to move their Motor Sport business to France and Germany with the loss 240 skilled jobs to the Birmingham economy."
"Only a couple of days ago the company met with local MP Jack Dromey and Vince Cable and agreed to consider in detail alternative sites in Birmingham and in particular Aston. I am at a loss to understand how those options could have been explored in detail over such a short period of time."
