Ford Plans To Minimize 1,150 Jobs In Britain, Unite Union Says

U.S. carmaker Ford plans to chop 1,150 jobs in Britain, the Unite union stated on Friday, with practically 1,000 job losses at its Bridgend engine plant in Wales. On Thursday, Ford stated it should reduce 1000's of jobs, take a look at plant closures and discontinue loss-making car traces as a part of a turnaround effort, and would begin consultations with unions on the plans. "Unite is totally dedicated to opposing any obligatory redundancies and campaigning strongly for Bridgend to have a viable future," Des Quinn, automotive spokesman at Unite, stated in a press release.
