Union urges Ford to make electric move

The Unite union has urged Ford to convert its UK engine plants to making electric cars and battery technology. Currently Ford makes engines for the Ford Fiesta and Jaguar Land Rover vehicles at Bridgend in South Wales and diesel engines in Dagenham in Essex. Unite wants to secure the future of both plants by persuading Ford to switch them to electric vehicles. Production of engines for Jaguar Land Rover at the Ford Engine plant in Bridgend will end in September 2020. At the moment Ford Bridgend makes half a million engines a year for Ford's own models and a quarter of a million for JLR. After 2020 the number of engines being made on the site will be just a quarter of present production levels.
