It is also looking at options for the
future of its Pharmacy business which could include the sale in
whole or part of the business.
Usdaw is seeking urgent talks with the
business regarding the impact to our members in the Farms and
Usdaw urges Co-op Group to seriously
consider the long term implications of any decision which sees it
disposing of important businesses as taking that route will have an
enormous impact on both the future of the Group as the county’s
largest member-owned organisation and to its hardworking employees
as well as the communities they serve.
We will also seek clarification
regarding the financial state the business is reportedly in.
Usdaw will do everything possible to
support and assist members during this period of uncertainty and
will ensure that they are kept informed of all developments.
