Union bosses are due to meet with management at UK sports carmaker TVR after the firm confirmed it had laid off staff.
TVR said it made the job cuts after poor winter sales
The Blackpool-based firm has said that less than half of its workforce has been affected by the temporary cuts.
Its comments came after the Transport and General Workers' Union (T&G) claimed half of the 300 employees had been told to stay at home.
Union leaders are due to meet with TVR management on Monday.
A T&G spokesman said TVR staff had "bent over backwards" to help the company, including agreeing to delay a January pay increase until the summer.
TVR said it had made the job cuts after poor winter sales.
A company spokesman added that the Blackpool firm hoped the affected staff could return to work once it had got its finances in order.
TVR was bought in 2004 by young Russian multi-millionaire Nikolay Smolensky, who was just 23 at the time.
Mr Smolensky's personal wealth is estimated at $100m (£56m).
TVR currently makes five different models - the Sagaris, Tuscan, Tuscan Convertible, T350 and Tamora.
The firm was founded in 1947 by Trevor Wilkinson, who used three consonants from his first name for the company title.
