Union will 'do everything' to support dairy workers

These closures will be a massive blow for the workers and the local areas affected. As more and more people are made redundant, job opportunities are becoming even scarcer. We now owe it to our members and their families to do everything in our power to help and support them.

We hope Dairy Crest's management will rethink this decision and we urge them to offer the staff affected every opportunity for redeployment within the business.

Aintree dairy to close

Milk supplier Dairy Crest has announced plans to close its glass bottling dairy at Aintree.

The decision to consult on the closure of our Aintree and Fenstanton facilities has not been taken lightly, but we believe that this proposed restructuring of our dairies business is the right decision for the long term.
