Unite reaction to statement by Northern Rock Chairman

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2007) -

Graham Goddard, Unite Deputy General Secretary, says:

"Unite the Union is utterly appalled by the comments made by Bryan Sanderson. Unite has previously had assurances from Northern Rock that compulsory redundancies will be avoided. Vague comments such as those expressed by the Chairman merely result in further insecurity for the employees of the bank, at a time when they are already under massive strain. On behalf of our members we will continue to press the bank to protect interests of our members.

"The new Chairman has yet to meet with any staff representatives of Northern Rock. We would urge him to think carefully before he makes further comments about the future of staff and to sit down and meet with the union."
