Ford confirms nearly 400 job losses at Bridgend
PA Car giant Ford has announced a voluntary redundancy programme at its Bridgend engine plant. The move, which Ford said was part of its ongoing actions to create a "Sustainably profitable business" in Europe, will affect between 350 and 400 jobs. It is nearly two years since fears of 1,160 job losses at the plant by 2021 emerged in a worse case scenario. Bridgend makes engines for Jaguar Land Rover but that contract finishes at the end of 2019, at around the same time the plant will stop making the Ford Ecoboost engine. If plans go ahead, the 990 jobs to be lost at Bridgend - almost half of the site's workforce - will go in two phases by 2021, as part of 1,150 losses across the UK..
