Telephone book printers RR Donnelley, based in North Yorkshire, could is reportedly close at the end of the year with a ‘devastating’ loss of about 200 jobs.
Unite, the country’s largest union, have said they are due to have talks with the management at the Flaxby plant in a bid to secure as many jobs as possible and to understand the causes for the possible closure.
The union's regional officer Chris Daly has said: “This is a bitter blow for the workforce and their families as well as the local economy. These are well-paid jobs that are under threat and won’t be easily replicated in rural North Yorkshire.
“We are due to have a meeting with the management next week – the day has yet to be confirmed – with a view to securing the best deal possible for our members. Obviously, we would like to secure all the jobs under threat.
“We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to support our members at what is a traumatic time for them.”

Another crisis, but at least fans get an email nowadays.
After two defeats in a week including a humiliating display against Sheff Wed Reserves, there's a glimmer of hope of Tyneside.
Knowing Chelsea could probably field three stronger teams than us, there were contrasting reactions before Newcastle even kicked a ball today.
The anger had barely subsided from midweek. Jeering at Half and Full-time in the Cup game and Steve McClaren's nod to a crisis, as well as Lee Charnley's declaration that we're all in this together made it a pretty nervous walk to SJP today.
What we witnessed was an excellent performance from all 11 players with great footwork by Perez. In one slick movement he dispatched a beauty, and then a great free header from Wynaldum almost made us hopeful.
The way we got at Chelsea at every turn in a fantastic first half makes you wonder what we've missed in not having a front player who has height and presence and a team who play with so much aggression and commitment.
Even though Chelsea came back to snatch a point with a wonder strike and a fortunate free kick, a heartening Geordie roar rang out today when our team finally seemed to wake up.
Next up Manchester City. Same passion and desire please lads.
