BMW to stop work at UK factory for two days due to Brexit

BMW will make workers at its Mini plant in Oxford in the UK take unpaid leave for two weeks or more if  a no-deal Brexit causes major disruption to its business.
 
Chief Financial Officer at the company, Nicolas Peter says BMW is ready to close the Cowley factory for at least a fortnight from the October 31 Brexit deadline if  the company has problems importing components for vehicles. 
 
He also noted that the shutdown could stretch to more than three weeks.
 
Cowley's 4,500 workers would go unpaid because their holiday allowance was used up in April when BMW carried out a planned shutdown of  the plant for a month after the original Brexit deadline of  March 29.
