Jaguar Land Rover to Cut Jobs due to Brexit and a Diesel Slump

 1 min read / 

Jaguar Land Rover, the biggest carmaker in Britain, is planning to cut around 1,000 jobs and production at two if its factories in England, as reported by Reuters, due to a reduction in sales as a result of Brexit certainty and confusion over diesel policy.

The two factories in question are the central English Solihull and Castle Bromwich plants, and this will affect around 1,000 agency workers.

The company released this statement:

“In light of the continuing headwinds impacting the car industry, we are making some adjustments to our production schedules and the level of agency staff.”

The company is not renewing the contracts of several agency staff and will be informing staff of plans for the next financial year on Monday.

Jaguar has seen sales fall by 26% since the start of the year, with buyers avoiding diesel over concerns about planned tax rises and restrictions in several countries. Brexit has also reduced demand, which resulted in the firm announcing in January that it would temporarily reduce production at a plant in Halewood later in the year.
