Morrisons has axed 2,600 jobs in a bid to "modernise the way the stores are managed" and "simplify" the management structure, the supermarket's boss said.
Dalton Philips, Morrisons chief executive, said: “This is the right time to modernise the way our stores are managed. These changes will improve our focus on customers and lead to simpler, smarter ways of working.
“We know that moving to the new management structure will mean uncertainty for our colleagues and we will be supporting them through the process.”
