Arla Foods To Be Sued By Unite Union

2 June 2016, 16:18

The Unite union says it plans to sue Arla Foods for its "failure to consult" on plans to cut 230 jobs at its milk plant at Hatfield Peverel.

It says the consultation that did take place was "a sham" and it didn't look at ways to avoid or reduce the number of job losses.

Arla have said  "we are urgently seeking clarification from Unite as to why they have issued this statement at this time, which we do not believe assists any of those impacted by the changes at the site."
