Crisis meeting for Solway Foods workers

Efforts have been going on for weeks to save jobs at a food processing factory in Corby but, with hundreds of redundancies now certain, attention has turned to helping those who will soon be out of a job.

Workers at Solway Foods were today involved in a crisis meeting with the taskforce set up to try to help those affected by changes at the plant which could see it close.

Despite insisting a final decision has yet to be made, the company is already inviting voluntary redundancies. Up to 500 jobs could go as early as next month.
