More Rover Job Cuts

STUTTGART, Germany -- BMW's British unit Rover Group Ltd., which saw 2,500 job cuts this year, may face the same amount of layoffs in 1999, BMW chairman Bernd Pischetsrieder said.

"In 1999 there could again be 2,500 fewer positions at Rover," he said at a journalists club meeting late Tuesday. At the beginning of 1998, Rover had a work force of 40,000, he noted.
