GMB In Redundancy Consultation At Aga Rangemaster After Company Announce Up To 188 Jobs Under Threat At Three Midlands Sites
We have met with the company to discuss the reasons for cuts and the priority will be to limit the number of job losses and to avoid compulsory redundancies says GMB.
GMB is engaged in consultations on up to 60 redundancies with AGA Rangemaster at its Leamington Spa site in the West Midlands. This is one of the sites covered by the announcement by the company. There will be 109 redundancies at Long Eaton and 19 at Telford. AGA Rangemaster has told the union that the intention is to make the first redundancies by the 5th February 2016.
Mohammed Khalik, GMB Regional Officer, said “AGA Rangemaster is now engaged in consultation over 188 redundancies at their three sites in the Midlands. This follows a review of operations after the acquisition of AGA Rangemaster by the US based Middleby Corporation.
The announcement affects the hourly paid at Leamington where GMB represents and the staff grades.
This is very disappointing news especially at this time of year when people should be looking forward to a break with their families. GMB have met with the company to discuss the reasons for this decision. The priority will be to limit the number of job losses and to avoid compulsory redundancies.”
