Sarah has been working closely with Unite the Union, as well as regularly speaking with Honda, about the offer to be made to Honda workers once the car plant closes down. Sarah stood side by side with the workers at the rally earlier in the year, and has had her offer accepted to help the Swindon Taskforce to look for solutions to help fill the gap Honda will leave behind.
“This is really devastating news for everyone working at Honda but also for Swindon and the South-West more widely. Swindon is ideally placed to be a hub for electric vehicle manufacture- we have the skills and an advantageous geographical location to be that hub. I hope that everyone will now pull together to ensure that the impact of the closure does as little damage as possible.”
