Carmaker Jaguar Land Rover will move workers at its plant in Solihull to a three-day week schedule until Christmas, “in light of the continuing headwinds impacting the car industry”.
The temporary adjustments to its production schedules at its primary plant for Jaguar vehicles at Castle Bromwich, will affect more than 3,000 workers at the plant.
However, the company has said that staff will retain pay and benefit levels during the schedule cut, which begins in October.
In a statement regarding Castle Bromwich, Jaguar Land Rover said: “As is standard business practice, Jaguar Land Rover regularly reviews its production schedules to ensure market demand is balanced globally.
“In light of the continuing headwinds impacting the car industry, we are making some temporary adjustments to our production schedules at Castle Bromwich.
“We are, however, continuing to over-proportionally invest in new products and technologies, and are committed to our UK plants, in which we have invested more than £4bn since 2010 to future proof manufacturing technologies to deliver new models.”
