Mark Todd – Usdaw National Officer says:
“Next management have briefed staff about their proposed closure of the Bradford site and development of a new operation at South Elmsall. Myself and Usdaw reps will now enter into a meaningful consultation talks, where we will have the opportunity to look at the company’s business case.
“Our priorities are to secure the best available deal for those impacted by these proposals and keep as many staff as possible employed within the business and where necessary support members securing alternative employment. In the meantime, we are providing our members with the support, advice and representation they need at this difficult time.”
