Unite Wales has today received the news that Marshall Aviation Services have decided to close their Broughton facility.
Responding to the announcement Unite Wales Regional Officer Dave Griffiths said;
“We have received the devastating news that Marshalls have decided to close their facility at Broughton.
We are now in the 45 day consultation period. We will use this time to work with our members and the company in an effort to save the business. Unite will do everything in its power to support our members during this difficult time.
Unite recognises that the loss of these highly skilled roles would mean the virtual eradication of the Aircraft maintenance sector in North Wales”.
No further comment will be made whilst the consultation period commences.
