Stellantis Announces Job Cuts in U.S. Engineering and Technology Sector Amid Industry Uncertainty

Stellantis to Cut 400 Jobs in US, Increase Production of Electric Vehicles

Stellantis, a global automaker with subsidiaries worldwide, has announced plans to cut 400 engineering/technology and software jobs in the U.S. This represents two percent of the workforce in such positions at the company. The decision comes as the automotive industry faces unprecedented uncertainty and increased competition, prompting Stellantis to make structural changes to improve efficiency and optimize costs.

In recent months, the United Auto Workers (UAW) union president has criticized Stellantis for laying off temporary workers in the U.S., attributing the move to corporate greed. However, a new contract between UAW and management resulted in approximately 3,000 temporary employees securing permanent positions. Last year, Stellantis offered severance pay for voluntary departures as part of preparations for transitioning to electric vehicles, citing the need to become more efficient.

The exact number of workers offered severance pay has not been disclosed by management. In February, it was reported that Stellantis employed 81,341 workers in North America at the end of the previous year, down from 88,835 employees at the end of 2022. Despite this decrease in employment numbers, Stellantis remains committed to its strategic goals and plans to introduce at least 25 battery-electric car models in the U.S. by 2030.
