Tata Motors’ arm plans over 1,000 job cuts over Covid-19
17th Jun 2020

Tata Motors’ wholly owned subsidiary -- Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plans to cut over 1,000 contract-agency jobs amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic pressures. The company had earlier reported 30.9% drop in sales in the aftermath of the pandemic related lockdown. Through its ongoing transformation programme, Jaguar Land Rover is taking action to optimise performance and achieve further operational efficiencies to enable sustainable growth and safeguard the long-term success of business.

Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has taken the difficult decision to reduce the number of contract-agency employees in its manufacturing plants over the coming months. The jobs are expected to be cut from across the business' UK manufacturing sites, a process that will begin at the end of July and last through the year.

Tata Motors is India’s largest automobile company. Through subsidiaries and associate companies, Tata Motors has operations in the UK, South Korea, Thailand, South Africa and Indonesia. Among them is Jaguar Land Rover, the business comprising the two iconic British brands.
