The Unite union has said it will press Lloyds Bank for a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies as the banking group was revealed to be axing 645 jobs and closing a telephone banking centre in Warrington.
Over 2,400 jobs have gone at the taxpayer bailed out bank since the start of the year leading to "plummeting" staff morale, said Unite.
Half the job losses half will result from the Warrington site's closure by the end of 2014, in a move Unite branded as "unjustified" and a "bad deal" for customers. Most of the other cuts will be from the group's wealth business and HR function, said Unite.
