JOIN THE FIGHT TO SAVE GE RUGBY!
The G.E. Rotating Machine site in Leicester Road, Rugby is a world class manufacturing establishment that has designed and supplied power generation for over 90% of the current Royal Navy ﬂeet. Despite having a tremendous future on the horizon with orders from the UK, as well as huge potential export orders from the Australian, Canadian, and U.S. navies, GE want to brutally force closure of the site and transfer the work to Nancy in France.
This will mean British workers are thrown on the dole whilst British taxpayers are paying French workers to make equipment for the Royal Navy!
The site is unique in the UK in its manufacturing capability and closure will make the UK dependant on foreign manufacturer’s for the supply of the Royal Navy.
On buying the business 6 years ago G.E signed an agreement with the Government that they would always maintain a manufacturing facility in the U.K. – they are trying to break this agreement.
Workers and their union at the site are now in deep consultation with the company, but despite the extremely positive future, GE seem determined to close the site – we are equally determined not to let that happen!
