Jaguar cuts BL links
Jaguar Cars is severing its two remaining links with BL to prepare for privatization this summer. It is starting its own parts warehouse and withdrawing from corporate wage negotiations.
Jaguar’s return to its own parts operation is going smoothly but shop stewards representing 8,000 employees are opposing management proposals for separate pay talks. They insist that before new negotiating machinery is set up, Mr John Egan, Jaguar’s chairman, should give a signed undertaking that he will renegotiate everything agreed under the old corporate set-up. The ultimatum has been rejected.
