Up to 95 Aston Martin workers are to lose their jobs, a union has said.
The Transport and General Workers’ Union (TGWU) said the 1,200 workers at the plant, in Gaydon in Warwickshire, were told about the cuts on Monday.
A company spokesman said the redundancies were part of 600 jobs cuts – a third of the workforce – announced in December.
Cost-cutting proposals put forward by the firm have been rejected by the union, they added.
Des Quinn, TGWU regional organiser, said he was concerned at the number of cuts but discussions with management were on-going.
Production line staff were put on a three-day week in January as David Richards, the firm’s owner, said he did not expect there to be any more more redundancies following the announcement in December.
In March the firm unveiled its new £1m limited edition sports car – The One-77 – at the Geneva Motor Show.
