Redundancies in Llanelli
Article published on 11th June 2008
Operations staff at Draka Wire, a 150 strong Dutch-owned copper wire factory in Llanelli, Wales, have been offered voluntary redundancies, with 18 needing to go. Four temporary workers have already lost their jobs at the factory.
Falling sales have been blamed for the redundancies. Stuart Roberts, the operations manager at the factory said the following in a letter to employees:
"It is clear that we must find other ways to align with current commercial activity if we are to maintain vibrancy in our enterprise."
"Consultations have been held with the National Works Council as well as union representatives, and it is agreed that in an attempt to avoid enforced redundancies, the company will consider applications for voluntary redundancy."
Since then, representatives from the Welsh factory have declined to comment any further on the matter.
