    GM Europe is literally the only thing stopping GM going bust, they're the only part of the group actually making a profit.

    There are numerous rumours doing the rounds in work last night, but can't reveal any sorry. However I can say that at the moment we are only working a maximum 3 day week in Ellesmere Port. I have just finished 2 weeks of nights and have worked a total of 4 nights out of a possible 8. There is a good chance we are going to have a 2 week shut down in the next couple of weeks.We have known for ages that GM are in the s@it and that GM Europe have been keeping them afloat but I suppose it can only go on for so long.

    Taffy (I'm welsh as well BTW) sorry to add more woe.... I'm in a smiliar boat as well mate. My contract ends at the end of March and today I find out massive cuts are going to be made.....

    My only advice mate is to get some evening classes on the go... get trained up as much as possible. Its crap having to do it but believe me, the more skills you have....

    Also there's always KFC and McDonalds to work in... fast food resturants always climb in business during bad economic (recession) times!!!

    1500 job cuts in my work so far more to come. i have asked for my redundancy but they said no as i have so many years service (cost to much i presume). thats why i have bought a vectra for taxi driving just incase i do go. but the money is only good working at weekends but anything is better than signing on.
    my trade is a mechanic ands there is no money there either
