Unite national officer for the automotive industry Steve Bush said: “The reaffirmation of this already announced investment of £400 million in a new production press at the Sunderland plant is a welcome confidence booster for the 6,000-strong workforce.
“In challenging economic times, such investment by Nissan is warmly welcomed and a big vote of confidence in the world class, highly skilled workforce that has an excellent record in producing world-class cars.
“Unite looks forward to working closely with the management in the future so that our strong relationship, built up over recent decades, continues to flourish.”
