DETROIT (Michigan News Source) – Another Detroit automaker is slashing jobs in a cost-cutting campaign. Ford Motor Company has announced plans to layoff 1,100 workers at a plant in Spain.

The company had already announced job reduction plans in the U.K. and Germany. Last year, Ford had said it was delaying production investments in Spain, citing a “revised outlook for Europe”, but said it would stick with a plan to start producing electric vehicles later this decade at its Spanish factory.

Ford says their plan to have an all-electric fleet of vehicles in Europe by 2035 hasn’t changed. The company has decided to stop assembling Galaxy minivans and S-Max station wagon-like cars in Valencia.
This news comes as General Motors recently announced the layoffs of around 500 workers and is offering buyout options for 58,000 salaried workers.
