– Andy Richards, Unite Wales Secretary
This news from Unilever unfortunately does not come as a surprise today but it is still disappointing and distressing for our members and other workers at the sites. Needless to say, any move that takes jobs and investment out of Wales is not good news, especially in the current economic climate. The priority now must be to ensure the best possible deal and future for those who are affected by today’s announcement.
350 jobs will be lost at Unilever sites across Wales the company is restructured, it has been confirmed today. It follows restructuring proposals announced in June.
