Nissan delays pay talks for UK workers until there is "better clarity" on future business



Nissan, which operates Britain's biggest car plant, has delayed the start of pay talks for UK workers until there is "better clarity" on future business.
 
The statement comes after the latest hold-up in Brexit talks ahead of a key summit this week as London and Brussels hope for a deal by next month.


Nissan, which built nearly one in three of Britain's 1.67 million new cars last year at its Sunderland plant, warned earlier this month that a 'no-deal' Brexit would have "serious implications" for Britain's manufacturing industry.


Carmakers are already triggering contingency plans for no deal with BMW bringing forward the date of its annual shutdown to 1 April, just after the Brexit date at the end of March.


Jaguar Land Rover, Britain's biggest carmaker, has also sounded a warning on the risks of a cliff-edge departure from the European Union next March.
