GMB Call On Haringey Council To Halt Plans To Issue Redundancy Notices To Care Home Staff Pending Consultations With Union and Staff This decision from Haringey Council has once again shown that they are more interested in saving money than they are in helping their most vulnerable residents, says G.
Coca-Cola believe that they can save £12 million a year by closing the two sites. For a company that is making £1.7 billion a year in profit, £12 million is barely a scratch. For the sake of a small amount in the grand scheme of The Coca-Cola Company, 300 people are going to be thrown out of work. We still don’t think it is too late for this decision to be reversed, although Coca-Cola do seem to be intent on pushing ahead with it. Clearly, however much lip-service is paid to caring about the workforce, the bottom line is the one thing which large, International companies always put as priority number one. £1.7 billion is more cash than most ordinary working folk can even dream about, but for Coca-Cola, it's clearly not quite enough. It is another sad day for manufacturing in our region, which continues to decline, and a slap in the face for two towns which have helped generate a fortune for this company over the last 40 years. https://www.gmblondon.org.uk/news/gmb-question-coca-colas-decision-to-close-factory
