Online only: Ryton workers to crash Peugeot’s Paris party

UK Peugeot workers are travelling to Paris tomorrow to protest against the closure of the Ryton plant in Coventry at the French manufacturer’s annual meeting.

They will be joined by colleagues from across Europe at the meeting.

The decision to close the plant was made in April, with a loss of approximately 2,300 staff.

The plant will be brought to a close in two stages. It currently operates two shifts, which will be moved to a single shift in July. Production will not continue beyond July next year.

The company says it will work with trade unions and the Government throughout the next few months to provide support packages for its staff.
