Around 2,500 jobs are to go at travel firm Thomas Cook – many of which will be cut from the firm's head office in Peterborough.
The job losses, alongside the closure of 200 high street stores, are part of the next phase of a three year transformation plan for the company, which aims to cut costs and reduce financial losses.
The general secretary of TSSA – the union for people in travel and transport, Manuel Cortes, believes cuts aren't the answer.
