Today’s leak is deeply worrying for the 1,160 workers at Ford’s Bridgend plant who may lose their jobs by 2021 – Rebecca Long-Bailey

Rebecca
Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary
, commenting on a
leaked report which reveals over a thousand jobs are at risk at Ford’s Bridgend
base, said:  

‘’Today’s
leak is deeply worrying for the 1,160 workers at Ford’s Bridgend plant who may
lose their jobs by 2021.

“The
Government must urgently provide further details of the dialogue they have had
with Ford and provide much needed assurances to the families who will be affected.

“It
is becoming clearer each week that the Government’s approach is to jump from
crisis to crisis and offer assurances to individual companies on a piecemeal
basis. This is failing to give the manufacturing sector the certainty it so
needs.’’
