John Todd – Usdaw Area Organiser says:
“News of a restructure at Allied Bakeries in Glasgow is obviously devastating news for the staff who could be impacted. They are key workers who have worked through the pandemic, helping to keep the country fed.
“We are now in meaningful consultation talks with the company, where we are interrogating the business case for their proposals. Our priority is to retain as many jobs onsite as possible. In the meantime we are providing our members with the advice, support and representation that they need at this time of uncertainty.”
