JLR may shed up to 1000 jobs in UK

Land Rover Jaguar Land Rover to cut jobs and production – and to blame Brexit
Terence Owen | 14 April, 2018, 06:56

Output will be cut at its central English Solihull and Castle Bromwich plants, affecting some 1,000 agency workers, the source said.

A fall in demand for diesel models had also contributed the changes, with 1,000 jobs affected, ITV's business editor revealed on social media earlier today.

The person added: "On Monday we will be cascading our 18/19 production plans for the next fiscal year to our workforce".

Earlier this year, Britain's largest auto manufacturer had announced plans to cut production at its Halewood plant in Merseyside and pointed to "uncertainty" around the Brexit vote as well as the future of diesel vehicles as the main factors behind the "temporary adjustments".

The company said in the statement that it's continuing to recruit large numbers of engineers, graduates and apprentices as it invests in new products and technologies, and remains committed to United Kingdom plants in which it has spent more than £4 billion since 2010.

"We also remain committed to our United Kingdom plants, in which we have invested more than £4 billion since 2010 to futureproof manufacturing technologies to deliver new models".

Europa League: Arsenal play Atletico Madrid in semi-finals
CSKA Moscow scored two goals before Elneny distributed a magical pass to Danny Welbeck , turning the result to 2-1. Two-weeks from now, Arsenal play the first leg of their Europa League semifinal tie with Atlético Madrid .

The auto giant has cited "continuing headwinds" impacting the vehicle industry for the decision.

He said: "JLR appears to be especially exposed as over 90 per cent of sales are diesel".

The move comes days after JLR reported a rise in sales over the past 12 months, despite weaker conditions in the United Kingdom and Europe.

The news comes two months after the brand said it would temporarily reduce production at its Halewood plant later this year in response to weakening demand due to Brexit and tax hikes on diesel cars.

The latest set of cuts come in the wake of a weak United Kingdom market, with Jaguar sales down 26% so far this year, compared with last year, while demand for Land Rovers in Britain is down 20%.

Dom Tribe, automotive sector specialist at management consultancy Vendigital, said: 'This decision by Jaguar Land Rover is a further sign of ongoing uncertainty in the automotive industry.
