Nestlé UK is informing employees of proposals to cut seven jobs at its Girvan factory.
The company plans to cut nearly 300 jobs at four different sites: York, Fawdon, Halifax and Girvan through 2017 and 2018. The company is hoping the cuts would be achieved through voluntary redundancies.
A spokesman for Nestle UK said: “The proposed changes include amended and standardised shift patterns at each factory and, at Fawdon, the most complex of Nestlé’s UK confectionery sites, the transfer of Blue Riband production to a Nestlé factory in Poland. This would mean being able to simplify and focus Fawdon’s operation.”
A 45 day consultation on the proposals is to be launched.
