Unite concern over Dounreay jobs announcement

13 April 2017

Unite the union says it is ‘disappointed’ over plans to cut jobs at the Dounreay nuclear site, and believes there is enough work to support all the existing jobs.

The union was reacting to the news that site owner DSRL is to open a voluntary redundancy programme for staff. 

Unite regional officer Ian Ewing said: “We are very disappointed and concerned that the company have announced redundancies, when we believe there is enough work to sustain the resources presently employed. 

“We will work with the company to minimise the numbers at risk and we will not entertain any compulsory redundancies."
