AA set to cut 237 Scottish jobs

The
Automobile Association (AA) is set to close its Scottish roadside assistance
centre, with the loss of 237 jobs.

The
company plans to move its administrative wing – which includes call staff and
support workers – down to England.

The
announcement came during a meeting between staff and management and starts a
two-month consultation process on the proposed closure.

Alistair
Maclean, GMB national secretary for the AA, said the move was disgraceful, and
staff had been staggered by the news.

"The
Scottish workers have proved their professionalism and value to the company for
more than 50 years. To now announce they are sacking them and moving all its
operations to England is shocking," he said.
