Extended shutdown at Honda 

Swindon car giant announce 4 month closure
Honda in Swindon
Standstill for Honda:
Announcement of a further
two month shutdown
Just one month on and Honda have announced that it plans to stop production for a further two months.
The Swindon plant will now close throughout April and May due to a collapse in global sales.

Staff have been told they will only get 50 per cent of their pay during the shutdown.
Honda have said there were no plans for redundancies and it intends to 'safeguard employment' for those workers who want to stay.
More unsettling news
In the same week, BMW in Swindon have also announced that they will be shutting their factory for three weeks this year.
The first week next month.
