More than 200 jobs in Coalville at risk

Hundreds of workers at Schlegel Automotive Europe Ltd in Coalville in Leicestershire have been left devastated by an announcement that the company has gone into administration.

The sealing specialist employs 334 highly skilled workers, of which 218 are now reportedly at risk of being made redundant.

Unite believes these job losses are the direct result of the loss of a large Nissan contract.

The union will try to secure a buyer for the remaining business and ensure that those who have lost their jobs get the best redundancy entitlement.

“Hundreds of loyal workers have been left utterly devastated by the news that Schlegel has gone into administration. Our main priority now is to save as many jobs as possible and ensure those who lose their jobs receive the best redundancy package available.
