Union members at a china clay firm have voted against industrial action.
The company is the world's largest producer of china clay
Imerys, which employs about 2,000 people, plans to shift some operations to Brazil to reduce costs.
The Transport and General Workers Union (T&G) called a ballot of its 900 members after the firm announced 800 posts were going in Cornwall and Devon.
A T&G spokesman said: "Those who wanted to fight back will be very disappointed, we understand the huge pressure members have been under."
The company said the cuts were necessary and would help ensure the future of the rest of its operations in the South West.
The company is the world's largest producer of china clay, operating in 250 locations in 43 countries.
China clay, or kaolin, has a variety of uses, but is mainly used to whiten and give a glossy coating to paper.
