Jaguar Land Rover will have a week's shut-down of its Halewood factory next month.
The measure, from October 27, is hoped to help bring production back in line with sales.
The Tata-owned carmaker said it normally ceases production at its Castle Bromwich and Solihull plants during the autumn half-term week, but not Halewood, which builds the Freelander and X-Type.
However it needs to reduce production due to less demand.
The plant axed 55 agency workers earlier this month.
Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull plant is reduced to a four day working week.
