Ford to cut 12,000 jobs in Europe

Car giant Ford has said it is planning to cut about 12,000 jobs across its European operations by the end of 2020 as it seeks to streamline its business. Ford currently employs 51,000 people in Europe through directly owned operations and joint ventures. Ford said that of the 12,000 jobs affected, 2,000 were salaried roles, which are among the previously announced 7,000 salaried jobs that are being cut worldwide. "Separating employees and closing plants are the hardest decisions we make, and in recognition of the effect on families and communities, we are providing support to ease the impact," said Stuart Rowley, president of Ford of Europe. Ford is planning to close or sell six manufacturing plants by the end of next year.
