– Spokesperson, Welsh Government
The Welsh Government has been engaged in talks with senior Unilever management over the summer in a bid to reverse the company's restructuring proposals and safeguard jobs in Wales. It is therefore disappointing to hear that the intended closures and job losses at Swansea, Bridgend and Ewloe are set to go ahead. The Welsh Government stands ready to offer every assistance within its powers, including training support, to help Unilever workers in Wales facing redundancy to find new employment.
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.
