Alexander Dennis (ADL), the UK’s largest bus and coach builder, is to axe at least 160 jobs at its Falkirk and Larbert bases in Scotland while outsourcing a contract from Berlin to a plant in Turkey.

The Scottish factories together employ 850 workers and the Unite union has said that the final jobs cull will likely exceed 200 jobs after the company fully reveals its restructuring plans.

The company announced last month that 650 jobs across the group were under threat.

Unite said it has discovered that the job cuts were planned before the pandemic and is now calling for government support for ADL to be conditional on keeping jobs in the UK.
