Amicus reaction to Cranberry Foods job losses

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - April 10, 2007) -

Amicus Regional Officer Martin Mansfield says:

"Amicus is extremely disappointed that Cranberry foods is to go ahead with these redundancies.

"These are loyal and committed workers who have helped the company through difficult times, to now face an uncertain future.

"Amicus has made every effort during the consultation process to establish whether any alternative to the job losses could be found. Regretfully we now have to accept that we have exhausted consideration of any rescue package or alternative proposal and that no further avenues remain open. This was accepted overwhelmingly in a ballot of our members on the efffected site.

" We have been able to negotiate a number of enhancements to the redundancy package. We are also actively working with the company to ensure that training and job placement agencies are involved to assist workers into new employment outside the company.

"120 jobs will remain at Abergavenny and Amicus will do all in our power to ensure that these are secure for the long term and rewarded with good pay, terms and conditions."
