German logistics firm DHL plans to chop as many as 2,200 jobs of UK-based staff at Jaguar Land Rover factories, the Unite commerce union stated on Tuesday.
The job cuts comprise just below 40% of all the DHL workforce on the contract, the union stated.
DHL indicated that the half of the job cuts are attributable to a decline in automobile manufacturing and half are the results of anticipated “efficeincy savings”, the union added.
“DHL must not attempt to make permanent full-time staff redundant while continuing to outsource work to sub-contractors,” Matt Draper, Unite nationwide officer for logistics, stated.
Last month India’s Tata Motors Ltd stated it anticipated to shed about 1,100 non permanent jobs at Jaguar Land Rover after it raised the cost-cutting goal at its luxurious unit by 1 billion kilos ($1.three billion) to experience out the disruptions brought on by the coronavirus outbreak.
