"The plans are for a total of 1,150 job losses in the UK," Britain's largest union Unite said in a statement.
Unite said it had been briefed regarding plans to axe 1,000 positions in two stages over two years at Ford's Bridgend engine plant in Wales. The remaining cuts would be at Ford's transport operations, affecting lorry drivers across the UK, the union added.
"It is a devastating blow for our members and their families, as well as having grave implications for the Welsh economy and the supply chain," Des Quinn, Unite national officer for automotive industries, said in a statement.
Also Thursday, Jaguar Land Rover said it would axe about 4,500 mostly UK jobs after a slump in Chinese sales last year.
