GMB Union is in urgent talks with JCB in an attempt to save nearly 1,500 jobs following a fall in demand due to Coronavirus. 

The construction giant has contacted nearly 1,000 staff members - and 500 agency workers - to tell them their jobs are at risk. 

A 45-day consultation period is due to start on Monday. 

Stuart Harrison, GMB Organiser said: 

“This announcement is devastating to everyone involved.  

“As the recognised union, GMB’s senior representatives have entered into urgent talks about the future of the business with management.  

“We will keep fighting to avoid job losses at all costs, for our members and their families
