More than 2,000 jobs to be axed by Consignia

Over
two thousand employees are to be made redundant by Consignia in an effort to
make the postal service more competitive.

A
total of 2,100 jobs will be axed over the next two years as the company
restructures its managerial and administrative departments.

Consignia
claims that most of its employees who are to lose their jobs will take
voluntary redundancy before the end of next year.

The
company denied union claims that a further 7,300 redundancies would be made,
stating that the employees will be absorbed into other jobs.

A
spokesman for Consignia stated, ‘This organisation is changing, there is a lot
of technology and this will be accompanied by restructuring.

“It
is regrettable that jobs will be lost, but all companies have an element of
natural wastage every year.”

The
company employs over 200,000 staff, 60,000 of who occupy administrative or
managerial positions.
