Save jobs in Hucknall
We want the Government and Rolls-Royce to protect the location and jobs of the now former Rolls Royce Hucknall workforce
Why is this important?
It is imperative that there be assurances in place to guarantee the highly skilled workforce here is protected after the sale of ITP aero. Rolls-Royce has had a presence in Hucknall since 1934. Over this time it has contributed enormously to both the local community and the nation as a whole. This site has pioneered the vertical take of engine, most notably used on the Harrier jump jet as well as the Merlin & Griffon engines which played an integral part in the defence of the nation.
It has a profound impact on the culture of the community and has seen generations of people dedicate themselves to its service. To lose this would be absolutely devastating to the thousands of people who have shown such devotion to the company over the last 9 decades & the wider community who rely on its presence to support them. The Spanish government are working to ensure the future of the Spanish employees of ITP who make up the majority of the global workforce. We are asking our government to give us the same support.
