Unite the Union has welcomed Jaguar Land Rover's announcement of 800 new jobs at Lode Lane in Solihull.
Following the bad news from Honda last week, these new jobs are to be welcomed. They are part of JLR's ongoing expansion.
"Although the contracts are for one year, we hope that we can convert them into well paid, permanent jobs in the future. The Evoque is a very successful export leader so there is no reason why that can't happen in the future.
"The workforce at Solihull are highly skilled and have made a massive contribution to the success of the company here in the UK."
