Union disappointment at Arriva decision to axe jobs

01 October 2013

Unite, one of the largest unions in Wales, has expressed its ‘disappointment’ at today’s decision by Arriva North West Wales that proposes job losses in across a number of sites in Wales.

Arriva announced proposals today (October 1) that could see a number of job losses and depot and out station closures in Aberystwyth, New Quay, Lampeter and Dolgellau.

Unite Wales officer, Tony Brady said:

"We're clearly disappointed by today's decision by Arriva to look at a number of closures that would result in people losing their jobs. This is a worrying development for our members effected who will now face great uncertainty in what are already financially trying times.

Going forward we are focused on working towards the best possible outcome for our members that are potentially impacted by today's announcement."

Ends.
