Cambridge-headquartered Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, has entered a consultation which could lead to 300 job losses.
The manufacturer, which employs about 1,900 workers according to workers’ union Unite, has said that it is consulting on making 300 workers redundant.
A statement from Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group said the process is part of its aim to “build a “more agile, competitive and sustainable company”.
“Our underlying core business is strong and we are continuing to support our many customers and invest heavily in the business; including the recent £20m upgrade of the Cambridge Airport’s runway and infrastructure,” it added.
“This is a significant change to the business which will, regrettably, impact on the number of people within the company and we have begun consultation on a proposed reduction of up to 300 positions throughout the organisation, at all levels.”
Unite added that it would enter into negotiations to reduce the overall number of redundancies.
Unite regional officer Richard Peters said: “Following this very disappointing news I will be seeking urgent negotiations with Marshall in order to seek to reduce the number of redundancies being made.”Discover More
