Young's to implement 70 redundancies

Young's to implement 70 redundancies

Expert employment law advice may be required by a group of employees at a factory after it emerged they could face redundancy in the near future.

Young's - a seafood firm based in Grimsby and established more than 200 years ago - has announced that 70 job cuts will be made at the Cromer Crab Company in the early stages of 2012 due to the effects of the global economic downturn.

The organisation has conducted a consultation process over the last three months to determine what action it needs to take and it has now been decided that maintaining this place of work with its current staffing levels is not feasible.

Pete Ward, chief operating officer of Young's, stated that the affected staff will receive notice in the coming days and insisted the decision was no reflection on the skill of those losing their jobs.

"This is not a decision we have taken lightly ... this is about ensuring that, in the tough new economic reality we all face, our business is sustainable for the long-term," he noted.
