VAUXHALL'S plant in Ellesmere Port was at a standstill today after an unofficial walkout by supply staff.
Total Development Solutions' night staff walked out on Friday in a row over redundancy terms.
This morning's shift continued the dispute and downed tools, bringing production of Vauxhall's new Astra to a halt. TDS provides all the components for the car.
Vauxhall is making 900 redundancies and has offered enhanced pay-outs.
The cutbacks announced by the car giant will lead to 200 of the 650 workers at TDS being axed.
But workers were angered by the terms proposed by bosses on Friday.
A TDS worker with one to four years' service will only get £1,500 in redundancy, while a Vauxhall colleague will get £10,000.
A Vauxhall spokesman said work on Friday was affected for an hour, but confirmed production had ceased today.
TDS said it was preparing a statement.
