JLR cuts 200 more jobs

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Front Page - By Jack Tor­rance

JAGUAR Land Rover is cut­ting around 200 jobs at its Soli­hull plant and giv­ing hun­dreds more work­ers at its en­gine fac­tory in Wolver­hamp­ton an early break for Christ­mas as it shifts pro­duc­tion abroad and bat­tles a slump in de­mand.

The job losses, re­ported by the BBC, are on top of 1,000 con­tract jobs that have al­ready been axed, as pro­duc­tion of its Dis­cov­ery model is shifted to Slo­vakia.

The com­pany also said that one third of the ap­prox­i­mately 1,600 staff in Wolver­hamp­ton will be given the two weeks be­fore Christ­mas off as paid leave. JLR set out plans to cut more than £2bn in costs last month along­side a £354m half-year loss.
