The leader of the country's biggest trade union has been reassured by the head of Vauxhall's parent company that he does not want to close UK plants.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey met PSA Peugeot Citroen boss Carlos Tavares to seek assurances over the future of the Ellesmere Port plant, saying it should be given a new model to secure hundreds of jobs.
The company said earlier this month that another 250 jobs could go at Vauxhall on top of 400 job losses announced last year.
Mr McCluskey said after the meeting in Paris:
Mr McCluskey said he would be pressing Business Secretary Greg Clark to make sure the UK Government does all it can to create the climate for PSA investment.
Unite pointed out that Vauxhall has consistently held a high proportion of the UK car market, with a market share ranging from around six to nearly 14% between 2014 and 2017.
