Ford Plans to Cut 1,150 Jobs in Bri­tain


LON­DON (Reuters) - U.S. car­maker Ford plans to cut 1,150 jobs in Bri­tain, the Unite union said on Fri­day, with nearly 1,000 job losses at its Brid­gend en­gine plant in Wales.

On Thurs­day, Ford said it will cut thou­sands of jobs, look at plant clo­sures and dis­con­tinue loss-mak­ing ve­hi­cle lines as part of a turn­around ef­fort, and would start con­sul­ta­tions with unions on the plans. “Unite is fully com­mit­ted to op­pos­ing any com­pul­sory re­dun­dan­cies and cam­paign­ing strongly for Brid­gend to have a vi­able fu­ture,” Des Quinn, au­to­mo­tive spokesman at Unite, said in a state­ment.
