LONDON, July 8 ― German logistics company DHL plans to cut as many as 2,200 jobs of UK-based workers at Jaguar Land Rover factories, the Unite trade union said yesterday.

The job cuts comprise just under 40 per cent of the entire DHL workforce on the contract, the union said.

DHL indicated that the half of the job cuts are due to a decline in car production and half are the result 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 national officer for logistics, said.

Last month India's Tata Motors Ltd said it expected to shed about 1,100 temporary jobs at Jaguar Land Rover after it raised the cost-cutting target at its luxury unit by £1 billion (RM5.37 billion) to ride out the disruptions caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
