Union says it will seek to minimise redundancies

1280px-Morrisons_Logo.svgUsdaw has described as “devastating” the news that Morrisons is to close ten stores.

Usdaw national officer Joanne McGuinness said: “This is devastating news for the staff in the 10 stores that Morrisons intends to close. We will now enter into full and meaningful consultation meetings on these proposals, where we will look closely at the company’s business case.

“Our priority is to maximise employment within Morrison’s, seek redeployment opportunities for members whose shop is closed and minimise compulsory redundancies. We will support, advise and represent our members throughout this period of uncertainty.”
