EPMU welcomes General Cable decision to defer redundancies

EPMU welcomes General Cable decision to defer redundancies

The Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union (EPMU) welcomes today's announcement by General Cable that it will put off planned redundancies for the rest of 2011 following the February earthquake in Chistchurch.

"It's good that General Cable recognises the difficult times ahead for employees and their families and is acting responsibly by retaining valuable skilled workers who would not be easy to replace," says EPMU lead organiser Phil Knight.

"Our members at General Cable in Christchurch are still anxious about the prospect of redundancies following in 2012 so we will need to take up their concerns with the company in due course," he says.

"In the meantime we will continue to engage constructively with the company on the remaining issues and encourage other Chritchurch-based companies considering redundancies to follow the lead that General Cable is giving on this."
