Following a protest outside a Weetabix factory in Cheltenham the employer has offered an enhanced redundancy package.

105 employees at the plant on the Kingsditch Industrial Estate were made redundant after the factory announced it would close. They say their not happy with the redundancy packages they were offered.

Following a consultation process, we have agreed to work with our employees, their trade unions and local employment agencies to proceed with a phased closure of the business beginning in early 2015.

An enhanced redundancy package has been offered and we will be supporting employees to find new roles with out-placement support and a number of local companies have already been in touch to make us aware of vacancies.

Throughout this period we will be providing support to employees in the search for alternative employment. This has been a difficult decision and we appreciate it affects all of our people and their families.
