Union says it will support, advise and represent its members throughout this “difficult period of uncertainty”

TescoUsdaw has today said it will do what it can to keep job losses at Tesco to a minimum after the supermarket chain named the 43 stores to be closed.

More than 2,000 staff are at risk.

Usdaw national officer Pauline Foulkes said: “This is devastating news for the dedicated staff in who have worked hard to make their shop viable during a difficult time for the company.

“We will now enter into full and meaningful consultation meetings on this proposal, where we will look closely at the company’s business case for the closures. Our priority is to maximise employment within Tesco, seek redeployment opportunities for members, where possible, and to keep job losses to a minimum.

“We will support, advise and represent our members throughout this difficult period of uncertainty.”
