Ford: 1,000 Bridgend jobs could be lost by 2021
PA About 1,000 jobs are under threat at a Ford plant in south Wales. If plans go ahead, the Bridgend jobs - more than half of the site's workforce - will go in two phases by 2021, as part of 1,150 losses across the UK. Ford declined to confirm the figures and said it was currently consulting with unions. The Bridgend site produces engines for Ford motor vehicles and employs about 1,700 people in total. "We are taking decisive action to transform the Ford business in Europe," said group vice president for Europe Steven Armstrong. The announcement from Ford came on the same day as Jaguar Land Rover said it was axing 4,500 jobs and Honda said it was halting production for six days after Brexit.
