Brexit: Jaguar Land Rover to cut 1000 contract jobs

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that the contracts of 1,000 temporary workers in the United Kingdom will not be renewed, according to BBC News.

The company said in a statement that "continuing headwinds" have forced it to make "adjustments to production schedules and the number of agency staff".

The company said in the statement that it's continuing to recruit large numbers of engineers, graduates and apprentices as it invests in new products and technologies, and remains committed to United Kingdom plants in which it has spent more than £4 billion since 2010. The jobs will be lost from the Solihull and Castle Bromwich factory sites.

'We also remain committed to our United Kingdom plants in which we have invested more than £4 billion since 2010 to future proof manufacturing technologies to deliver new models'.

Latest employee figures say there are 3,200 people employed at the Castle Bromwich site and a further 10,000 at Solihull.

The company is not renewing the contracts of several agency staff and will be informing staff of plans for the next financial year on Monday.

Halewood is one of Tata-owned JLR's three United Kingdom plants.

"This is desperately bad news for all those affected and a worrying sign of how the deep uncertainty around Brexit is continuing to damage Britain's economic performance", said Peter Kyle MP, a member of the pro-Remain, Open Britain campaign, condemning the government's decision to rule out single market and customs union membership. "These changes have been communicated to our workforce", a JLR spokesperson said in January.

Jaguar's XE and XF are understood to have been affected most heavily by this, although nearly every model has been impacted because diesels account for around 90% of JLR's sales.

The auto manufacturing giant, which is headquartered in Coventry, said it would be "reviewing its production schedules" in a move that could reportedly impact 1,000 temporary workers.

Jaguar sales were down 26% to the end of March while Land Rover demand dropped 20% during the same period.
