Ford: Almost 1,000 Bridgend job losses by 2021 outlined to unions

Ford wants to cut 370 workers at an engine plant in south Wales in the first phase of almost 1,000 job losses, BBC Wales understands.
Unions have pledged to fight compulsory redundancies at the car giant's plant in Bridgend after they were briefed by Ford management on Friday.
It is believed the first tranche of cuts would be offered as voluntary redundancies.
Ford is looking to shake up its European operations.
It is nearly two years since fears of 1,160 job losses at the plant by 2021 emerged in a worse case scenario.
