Why don't unions resist these job cuts?

For all the 'British jobs' blather from union leaders and shop stewards in the past few weeks, there seem to be plenty of job losses that they aren't fighting, such as the sacking of hundreds of agency workers at Cowley, with barely an hour's notice.

The workers are extremely angry with the union bureaucrats for lack of action. So where are the wildcat strikes? Why aren't the union leaders demanding action to defend jobs? What about nationalising this car plant? If the government can throw money at the banks, why can't they take the car factories into public ownership to defend jobs?
