A few days after activist Joey Carbstrong shared this information, Pilgrim`s UK announced the closure of the Ashton-under-Lyne site. Was this caused by Joey`s videos?
Ashton-under-Lyne site to close according to Pilgrim’s UK
The Ashton-under-Lyne location of Pilgrim’s UK has been announced for closure, putting 542 employees at risk of losing their jobs.
In order to guarantee that Pilgrim’s UK has the optimal structure for long-term growth and development and for managing the current unfavorable market conditions in the UK, the closure is reportedly a part of the company’s continuing footprint review.
It has suggested shutting down the location and moving current operations to its facilities in Spalding, Westerleigh, and Bromborough, which would bring 90 new jobs.
According to Rachel Baldwin, vice president of human resources at Pilgrim’s UK, “the decision to propose the closure of our Ashton site has not been taken lightly and we have made every effort to explore alternative options.”
