Unite demands Lloyds ends its slash and burn approach to jobs

15 January 2013

Lloyds staff are continuing to pay with their jobs for the mistakes made by senior management says Unite, following news the bank is to cut a further 150 jobs in its branches.

Today's (15 January) announcement affects customer managers, business managers, counter managers and banking hall managers at Halifax Community Bank branches across England and Wales.

Unite national officer Dominic Hook said: "Hardworking staff are still paying a huge price for the mistakes made by the bank's senior executives. Unite will be working with its sister union Accord to challenge these job cuts. The loss of these front line jobs in branches up and down the country is likely to affect customer service.

"Unite is demanding that Lloyds ends its slash and burn approach to jobs at the bank and focuses on rebuilding a bank based on customer service rather than cost cutting."
