JLR to cut 200 jobs as production moves to Slovakia

About 200 jobs will be cut when car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover moves production to Slovakia, the BBC understands. The firm announced in June it planned to move production of its Land Rover Discovery SUV from its Solihull plant. The job cuts come as a response to "Fluctuating demand", JLR said, and are on top of the 1,000 cut in April at the Solihull plant. At the Wolverhampton engine plant, JLR said there would be a "Temporary pause in production in its machine and assembly halls", expected over the Christmas period. JLR said "Salaried staff" would continue as normal during the pause with impacted workers continuing to receive full pay.
