Yodel sale: Usdaw seeks an urgent meeting with new owners to safeguard jobs and protect members terms and conditions

Date: 13 February 2024 Distribution trade union Usdaw has welcomed a rescue deal for courier firm Yodel and the early indication that jobs will be safeguarded. The unions are now seeking talks to ensure that members are protected through the process.
The parcel delivery giant secured the deal amid reports last week it was lining up potential administrators in case a takeover could not be agreed. Today, Yodel said it was acquired by a new consortium, called YDLGP, which includes Jacob Corlett, the founder of logistics firm Shift, and investment bank Solano Partners.
Mark Todd - Usdaw National Officer says: “We are aware of the sale of Yodel and welcome the initial indication that this will safeguard jobs. Usdaw and the other recognised trade unions are now seeking talks with Yodel and the new owners YDLGP to ensure that our members terms and condition are protected. In the meantime, we are providing our members with the support, advice and representation they need through this process.”
