Rolls vote

Issue No. 1733

Workers at Rolls-Royce have voted by four to one for strikes to save jobs. The giant aero engineering group wants to cut 1,300 jobs and transfer work from Coventry to Canada. 'We feel completely betrayed after years of working our guts out for the company,' said a Rolls worker. 'We are not going to let globalisation take our jobs.' The first of a series of walkouts will hit Rolls in Coventry next week.
