GMB have announced they want to meet with Goodyear Dunlop tyres to discuss their decision to relocate after being asked 18 months ago to consider relocation to a different site in Birmingham.

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."
