BAE sheds 100 Tyneside jobs

Defence giant BAE Systems is set to axe 100 jobs at its Scotswood Road factory in Newcastle.

A spokesman has reportedly said it regretted the job losses but said BAE needed to become a more “efficient business”.

The firm is also planning to shut its Wolverhampton plant. The Union Unite said BAE had “let workers down.”

BAE is planning to transfer work to Telford, Shropshire.

The company makes vehicles for the British Army at its Tyneside site.

The work comes to an end in 2013.
