Jaguar Land Rover Will Lay Off Employees Before Brexit
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced plans to make some adjustments to its production plans and agency staffing levels to address the “continuing winds” of the automotive industry.
The British car manufacturer issued a statement on April 13 stating that they will still be committed to the UK factory and will continue to recruit a large number of high-tech engineers, graduates and apprentices because the company has invested heavily in new products and new technologies. Including light cars.
The statement is a response to a report from Reuters. The report cited sources as saying that Jaguar Land Rover will cut as many as 1,000 jobs at its two factories in Solihull and Bromwich.
Reuters added that Jaguar Land Rover announced earlier this year that its Harry Wood plant near Liverpool will temporarily reduce production later this year to cope with the decline in demand caused by the tax increase in the UK's Brexit and diesel vehicles.
