Phoenix needs 1,000 job cuts

Phoenix consortium leader John Towers has written to Rover workers asking for more volunteers for redundancy. So far only 300 workers have come forward, but the company needs 1,000 job cuts to complete its cost-cutting programme. When Phoenix bought Rover two months ago, it said it would not seek compulsory redundancies.
